Looking Downtown Menlo Park 2011-12-25_13-27 in front of Peet's.

UPDATE 6-14: Below I’ve included the Menlo Park Summer Concert Series for 2012 schedule!  I can’t wait!  But I also thought I’d take a moment to point out something new I’ve been doing concerning certain events in MP.  Take a moment to check out my “PS” at the bottom.  You never know, you might be helping out a neighbor!

The city of Menlo Park announced that the hours of the Downtown Block parties are changing and in that announcement, I found the dates for the Menlo Park Summer Concert Series in Fremont Park.

The Block Parties usually mark the start and end of the Summer Concert Series, where they shut down Santa Cruz Ave going through downtown and really break it out for the night.  This year, the party hours are being extended so that now the Downtown Block Party will start at 3p.m. and go to 11p.m..

The dates of the block party, which earmark the first and last weeks of the Summer Concert Series are Wednesday, June 20, 2012 & Wednesday, August 15th, 2012.

In Other News!

(In the meantime, if I could point fellow Menlo Park neighbors to a new service I thought I’d try and that’s the listing of lost pets.  Right now I only have a few items up, but if you could take a peek at the few notes I’ve put up, (clicking on the lost pets link) that would be awesome… You never know!  Right?)
