Hello everyone and welcome to Ellie Adventures! For today’s Vlog, we went to an All Italian Car & Motorcycle Show at Alameda, CA. The event was brought to you by Alfa Romeo and the proceeds go to the Special Olympics of Northern California. The vehicles featured are a variety of classic cars such as Alfa Romeo, Maserati, and Ferrari. Newer models of those cars were there as well. It was a great way to spend a Sunday for those who admire cars of different builds either it be new or old. Also, it was delightful to see others laying a chair and picnic blankets out and relaxing by their cars. It was a day well spent and it was all for a good cause. I hope you liked this video and continue to follow us for more adventures around the Bay Area. See you guys next time. Music: “Omg” by Elmer Abapo

When I first moved to the Bay Area in 2013, the far East Bay was considered a sleepier, less-trendy place than Berkeley and Oakland, and certainly less than downtown San Francisco. Over the last near-decade, though, that has changed dramatically.
