Today: May Day parade in Woodside

Eucadio Martinez will be grand marshal for this year's annual May Day parade and carnival to be held Saturday, May 4, in Woodside. Mr. Martinez is the maintenance supervisor at Woodside Elementary School, where he has been employed for the past 13 years.

The grand marshal leads the annual parade, followed by the Royal Court from the 2012-2013 kindergarten class at Woodside Elementary. (The Woodside School PTA sponsors this event.) The parade starts promptly at 10 a.m. Check-in begins at 9 a.m. at the school.

The day's activities begin at 7:30 a.m. with a "Fun Run," organized by the Woodside Recreation Committee, and an 8 a.m. pancake breakfast at Woodside Village Church sponsored by the Rotary Club of Woodside-Portola Valley.

Following the parade, the third grade will lead the traditional maypole dance and the Woodside Citizen of the Year award will be presented in the school's outdoor amphitheater.

A barbecue will be held from noon to 2 p.m. at the school, to be followed by carnival games and crafts from noon to 3 p.m.

For more information call Woodside PTA May Day chair Zainab Khan at 415-215-6881. Tickets for the barbecue and carnival may be purchased in advance at the Woodside Elementary School office, 3195 Woodside Road.
