Fun at the Block Party

Menlo on the Move | Smart Mobility for the Future

We’re on the move with smart mobility at our 2017 Block Party. Get rolling with electric vehicles, e-bikes, and trains. Test drive an electric vehicle and learn about charging summaries and deal incentives. It’s free to test drive! Be sure to bring your valid driver’s license. There will be ten electric vehicles of different models to test drive and several more electric vehicles on display.

Don’t have a driver’s license yet? We’ll test drive e-bikes and scooters, too! Or hop in on our trackless train and enjoy our bike rodeo. There’s more than one way to get to where you’re going. Explore your options with CalTrain and SamTrans!

Everyone is encouraged to ride their bikes to the event. Decorate your bikes and add lights to make a bike parade to the Block Party. The Menlo Park Police will provide safety tips on bike riding. A riding pattern will be set up for children to ride through.

Live Music, Dining, and Activities

Hungry for more? Feast your soul on live music and delicious café dining. The forecast is looking beautiful for Wednesday so relax in the summer breeze with outside café seating.

Roll into more fun with our inflatable slide and giant spinner. Let your creativity flow on our huge chalkboard. What will your future electric vehicle or bike look like? We’re curious to find out!

After the Block Party, catch a movie on the Paseo. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs for when the sun goes down and the silver screen goes up. The movie will be Cars, featuring hotshot race car Lightning McQueen. The movie starts at 8:30 pm.

It’s all happening tomorrow at 5:30 pm on Santa Cruz Avenue. See you there!
