Menlo Park’s Aug 15 Summer Block Party – Cancelled by City!

Menlo Park CAI just found out that the City of Menlo Park has cancelled the downtown summer block party that was scheduled for this Wednesday, August 15th, 2012! The reason given was a generic one,

After much consideration the Chamber of Commerce has decided to forego the August event, but intend to continue in 2013 with the 7th Annual Block Party. We are very pleased that the Block Party has truly become an annual event which we all look forward to, both as patrons and participants.

I’m a bit stunned, but I might understand this decision. The block party that took place on June 20th promised to be a big one, even with extended hours. But it was sparsely attended and the amount of vendors also seemed light.

I was bummed to see that.

With most of the summer concert events this year being lightly attended compared to previous years, I can only guess that possibly someone extrapolated that the attendance for the closing block party might be also lightly attended.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news gang!

Thanks to Steve for pointing this out!

[City of Menlo Park]
