We admit we haven’t surveyed every street in Menlo Park, but we’ve been through enough neighborhoods to salute the many residents who decorate their front porches or yards for Halloween, making it fun and welcoming for trick or treaters — and amusing for the adults who accompany them.
As has been true in past years, Sherman Avenue between Santa Cruz and Valparaiso is particularly festive. Yesterday, Arthur Chait was busy hanging more heads, surely making his home the most headless in town. “I think I need an intervention,” he joked.
The area around Oak Knoll School stretching down Bay Laurel to San Mateo Drive features some clever decorations. We particularly like the skeleton couple accompanied by a skeleton dog toasting the season on the corner of Oak Knoll and Oak Dell.
Our Halloween photo collage was taken on Laurel St. between Glenwood and Encinal Avenues by InMenlo contributing photographer Irene Searles. For pure creep factor, it may just take the prize!
Reminder: The Members will be playing classic rock ‘n roll from 6:00 to 9:30 pm on the corner of Lemon and Oak Dell.
