On Saturday September 29th, State Street between Second Street and Third Street in downtown Los Altos will be 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 will be open 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 kicks off at 6pm by the Alison Sharino Band, a Bay Area dance band that appeals to every age group. All are 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 will be provided. (Remember that Los Altos has no open container prohibition so you are welcome to bring and responsibly consume your own wine or beer on the green!)
This event is one highlight of the greater Los Altos 60th birthday celebration taking place over the weekend, which also includes a historic bike tour of Los Altos on the 29th and a “Hidden History” downtown walking tour on the 30th.
