Tonight: Block party, concert in Menlo Park

 

The Groove Kings, dogs on parade, and outdoor dining; what more could a Menlo Park resident want on a summer evening? The Chamber of Commerce hosts its Fifth Annual Block Party on Wednesday, June 22, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on downtown Santa Cruz Avenue.

The Groove Kings will play classic rock covers starting at 6:30 p.m. in Fremont Park, at University Drive and Santa Cruz Avenue. It's the launch of an eight-week free summer concert series running on Wednesday evenings through Aug. 10.

Other musical acts expected at Wednesday's block party are Acoustic Sun, Andy Z, Blue, Buffalo Chips, Jack Lorton, Loose Gravel and Raytones.

The event's first dog parade starts at 6:30 p.m.

Preparations for the block party include closing Santa Cruz Avenue at 3 p.m. between El Camino Real and University Drive. Any cars still parked on Santa Cruz Avenue at 4 p.m. will be towed, the chamber said.

The street will re-open by 11 p.m., according to the chamber.
