Menlo Park downtown block party

Menlo Park’s downtown Block Party, sponsored by the City and the Chamber of Commerce, will be held on Wednesday, June 15 from 5:00 to 9:00 pm on traffic-free Santa Cruz Avenue.  This year is the 10th Anniversary of this popular event. Enjoy music, food, classic cars, big city trucks, kids zone and four bands, with the Sun Kings (Beatles Tribute band) playing in Fremont Park starting at 6:30 pm. A favorite activity is the local restaurants moving outside onto the street. The half-dozen eateries who participate really add to the “night out on the town” ambience.

Editor Linda liked the way this photo, snapped last night at the downtown Menlo Park block party, captured what teenage girls do best of all – congregate and chat. The moment reminded me of that time, long ago, when I was 13 or so and summer stretched ahead, warm and lazy, with no cares and […]
