For its fifth annual National Night Out, Atherton hosted an event in Holbrook-Palmer Park to build community, meet safety officers, and generally have fun. There was music of all kinds and food galore including popcorn, snow cones, and cotton candy. There were also bouncy houses and face painting.

Fiona Lempres, a fourth-grader at Sacred Heart Schools Lower School in Atherton, contributed to this report. Her mother, Stephanie Lempres, took photos at the Atherton event.
