Music, outdoor dining, local artisans and family activities will liven up Santa Cruz Avenue on Wednesday, June 18, as Menlo Park holds its 8th annual block party and a summer concert.
Organized by the Chamber of Commerce, the festivities run from 5 to 9 p.m. Santa Cruz Avenue will be closed to traffic from El Camino Real to University Drive.
In concert with the annual block party on Wednesday, June 18, Beatles tribute band the Sun Kings will perform at Fremont Park (at the corner of University Drive and Santa Cruz Avenue) from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The performance kicks off Menlo Park's free concert-in-the-park series that involves eight bands performing on Wednesdays in Fremont Park from June 18 through Aug. 13 (no concert on July 2).
The music varies from classic rock to funk to jazz. Families are encouraged to bring blankets and picnic baskets to the concerts.
