Halloween Hoopla sees record attendance

Posted on November 7, 2015 at 6:13 pm by Clay Curtin

On Saturday, Oct. 31, Menlo Park hosted its annual Halloween Hoopla in downtown on Santa Cruz Avenue. Approximately 2,500 participants were led by the bands from La Entrada and Hillview middle schools in the parade down Santa Cruz Avenue to Fremont Park. At the park, children and their families were entertained by a variety of crafts, local magician, Marshall Magoon and carnival games with a variety of prizes. In addition, all children were invited to trick-or-treat at downtown Menlo Park merchants. This event’s success is due in large part to the efforts of our volunteers, the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce, Menlo Park Police Department, and the Menlo Park Public Works Department. Many thanks go out to Cheeky Monkey Toys for providing all of the crafts for the event.
