On Saturday September 29th, State Street between Second Street and Third Street in downtown Los Altos was temporarily transformed into a downtown “green” featuring synthetic grass stretching down the entire block, playspace and seating, and a free live concert for all to enjoy. Starting at 5pm, a pop-up playground opened for kids of all ages to enjoy, including Imagination Playground oversized foam blocks, chalk and magnet art, bike racks, and a free bike Fix-It station.
After a brief ceremonial cake-cutting by Mayor Pro Tem. Jarrett Fishpaw, the live music kicked off at 6pm by the Alison Sharino Band, a Bay Area dance band that appeals to every age group. All were welcome and encouraged to pick up a dinner at a local Los Altos restaurant and set up a picnic or take a seat in the Adirondack chairs that were provided.
