The City of Menlo Park in partnership with Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce invites Menlo Park residents to celebrate the spooky season with a children’s costume parade, Downtown Merchant Trick or Treat and traditional autumn festival in downtown Menlo Park on Saturday, October 29th.

Event will take place on Santa Cruz Avenue and Fremont Park, and will feature live music, entertainment and family-friendly activities.

The Chamber works with the City of Menlo Park to light up downtown. In 2014 we will celebrate the 2nd Annual Holiday Tree Lighting at Fremont Park in which Santa Claus makes a special appearance, a holiday video is played and the magical Fremont Tree is lit up for the holidays! Join the merriment and festive cheer the first Friday in December.
