  1. Thanks, Mike!!!! It was a great event with a great crowd!!! Boy has the Bases Loaded food improved with the new owners!!! And, we got to see both Bay Area teams win on the great sports TVs!!! Won a Salami as a raffle prize as well!!! All and all very enjoyable!!!

  2. I’m not in favor of this celebration unless we have the proper amount police to run out to every house that has a neighbor shooting off a gun or trying to light the dry grass in Antioch on fire. We have serious criminals in Antioch and I don’t feel one bit safe with all the police downtown.

    • That money could have gone to fighting crime. we can’t always live in the now and that is whats wrong with our city. Fight the crime now and enjoy the fruits of labor when we have enough patrol to keep everyone safe.
