Tykes on bikes bring sea of red, white, and blue to Menlo Park’s annual 4th of July parade
They swarmed out from Chestnut Street onto Santa Cruz Avenue pedaling tricycles and bicycles and being pulled in wagons in what looked more like a pint-sized version of the Bay to Breakers — given its six or so abreast configuration — than an actual parade. But the annual march through downtown Menlo Park in route to more activities awaiting at Burgess Park remains a perennial favorite with younger locals and their parents. The spirit of red, white and blue prevailed with nary another color spotted!
