Halloween parade takes safe route

Families and kids are invited to come in costume and take part in Menlo Park's annual Halloween parade Saturday, Oct. 27, starting at 11:45 a.m.

This year the parade originates from the parking lot behind Citibank, at Maloney Street and Santa Cruz Avenue, instead of Burgess Park. This eliminates having hundreds of kids cross busy El Camino Real, as they did in past years.

The parade continues down Santa Cruz Avenue to Fremont Park at University Drive. Entertainment and arts and crafts will be available at Fremont Park until around 3 p.m. After the parade, kids may trick-or-treat in downtown Menlo Park stores displaying trick-or-treat signs.

For more information, call the Burgess Recreation Center at 330-2200.
