Portola Valley town picnic on Saturday


A demonstration on the game of tennis is a highlight this year at the Portola Valley annual town picnic at the Town Center at 765 Portola Road from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 5.

Tennis pro Corinne Mansourian will demonstrate the "Quickstart Method" of learning to play tennis. Her 1 p.m. presentation follows a martial arts demonstration at 12:30 p.m.

Food will be served by kids: the Boy Scouts for lunch, which includes barbecue, burgers, hot dogs and chicken salad; the Girl Scouts for cake; the Cub Scouts for popcorn, cotton candy and snow cones; and the Class of 2011 at Corte Madera School for frozen yogurt.

Child-centered pastimes include face painting, crafts, a climbing wall, jumpy houses and a dunk tank.

The day begins at 9 a.m. with registration for the walking, running, biking, scootering, roller-blading, skateboarding race at the Alpine Inn at 3915 Alpine Road next to the Rossotti soccer field. The 2.2 mile race to the Town Center begins at 10 a.m.

The $10 race entry fee includes a T-shirt, a race bib and a ribbon.
