Best Spot to Get Crafty

Alameda Art Lab

An offspring of Artistic Home Studio & Boutique on Park Street, Alameda Art Lab is the place Islanders go to get crafty and explore the glass arts. Students dive into making mosaics, stained glass, and more at the pleasant and roomy studio on Encinal Avenue. Pinterest Unplugged is a monthly art party where you are invited to leave technology at the door and get into hands-on crafting. Attendees get to choose from three to four cool projects to work on, based on what is hip and trending on Pinterest. Ask about the upcoming glass arts summer camp program for 2018. All skill levels are welcome.

Best Family Running Event

Alameda Running Festival

The family that runs together has fun together, and fun is in store for runners at the Alameda Running Festival. The something-for-everyone kind of running event at Alameda Point debuted in 2016, continues to grow, and benefits Alameda Meals on Wheels and the Alameda Education Foundation. Organized by Alameda born-and-raised triathlete Steven Ashbaker and pal Ryan Coelho as a way to highlight a great sport in a beautiful setting, ARF includes a half marathon, a half-marathon relay, a 10-kilometer run/walk, a 5-k run/walk, a family fun run, and a big party at the end, with local beer. The big day is Sept. 16.
