Check-in to be in the parade is at 9 a.m. at the school. Registration forms are available online at woodsideschool.us/PTA. Online registration ends on Wednesday, May 2.
The day begins with a fun run at 8:30 a.m. starting at the library at 3140 Woodside Road. The run is sponsored by the town's Recreation Committee. Same-day registration begins at 7:30 a.m.
Deputies from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office will close the road at 8:30 a.m.
To avoid a rush on race day, runners are advised to preregister at woodsiderec.net by Thursday, May 3. Preregistered runners should arrive no later than 8 a.m.
Entry fees for early registrars are $15 for adults, $10 for children 14 and under, and $40 for a family of four. Fees are somewhat higher to register on race day.
Racers receive T-shirts, and muffins, fruit and refreshments will be available. For more information, call 650-851-6790.
After the run, the Woodside/Portola Valley Rotary Club sponsors a pancake breakfast at the Woodside Village Church at 3154 Woodside Road.
The parade route — which is traversed twice, once in either direction — is the quarter-mile between the school and the intersection of Woodside and Canada roads. Among the participants will be a grand marshal and a royal court of kindergarteners chosen from the current kindergarten class.
Following the parade, the school community adjourns to the school's outdoor amphitheater for a May pole dance by third-graders and the presentation of the Woodside Citizen of the Year award.
To nominate someone for the award — a resident who has made "a sustained and significant contribution to Woodside School and specifically to the education and wellbeing of our children" — send an email to www.woodsideCOY@yahoo.com by Wednesday, April 25.
Closing out the day are a carnival and a barbecue from Alice's Restaurant in Woodside, starting at noon and ending at 2:30 p.m. on the school grounds. Tickets for the lunch are available for purchase at the school or online at woodsideschool.us/PTA.
