Portola Valley picnic set for Saturday

Bounce houses, a magician and carnival games at Town Center will be part of the children's entertainment in Portola Valley on Saturday, June 7, when the town celebrates its annual picnic, free and open to the public.

The day begins at 9 a.m. with registration for the Zots-to-Tots walk, run and bicycle race from the Alpine Inn/Rossotti's restaurant at 3915 Alpine Road to Town Center at 765 Portola Road.

Deputies from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office will be regulating traffic during the race, between 10 and 10:30 a.m.

Race fees are $20 for adults and $15 for children 12 and younger. The fee covers the price of a T-shirt designed by sixth-grader Maria W. and awarded to race participants at the finish line. Extra T-shirts will be available for sale.

The Cub Scouts will host the carnival games, the Girl Scouts will distribute confections -- including cotton candy, snow cones and cake -- and the Boy Scouts will be making lunch, including Draeger's burgers, Schwartz hot dogs, veggie burgers, chips and drinks.

The public library will be looking for summer readers, and Friends of the Library will be selling used books, DVDs and CDs.
