Get your little crawler hydrated and ready to race! The “Diaper Derby” is returning this year to the 9th Annual Summer Block Party on June 17. Sponsored by Cheeky Monkey and West Bay Sanitation, the “Diaper Derby” is a fun competition for children under age one. Little crawlers race across the giant rainbow mats into the arms of their waiting parents.

Registration forms are available by contacting Menlo Park City Councilmember Ray Mueller at rdmueller@menlopark.org. Same day registration is available beginning at 5:00 pm. Races begin at 6:00 pm.

The Summer Block Party is sponsored and organized by the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the City of Menlo Park. This year’s theme is “Cars are the Stars.” The Summer Block Party begins at 5:00 pm downtown on Santa Cruz Avenue.

Come out and enjoy classic cars, outdoor dining, many diverse and exciting business booths, as well as live local entertainment.

This year the block party will also feature a children’s area with a giant inflatable slide, face painting, a chalkboard car for kid decorating, a mural for painting, hula hoop competitions, egg relay races and much more.
