Hundreds of kites dotted the skies at this year’s Kite Day, Saturday, May 6th. It was the 31st annual Kite Day and again held at Bedwell Bayfront Park from noon to 3 p.m. Organized by Menlo Park’s Community Services Department, it is free for families who can bring their own kites, or they can buy a kite and hot dog lunch for $6.00 per person. This was the eighth year the Menlo Park Kiwanis Club has served up hot dogs at the event.
Mark Ghanbari, David Wilkinson, Sam, and John O’Connor served up more hotdogs than they could count in 2015. In 2016 pictured above, the story was different with rainy weather hampering crowd numbers, but Charlie Porter joined the crew to brighten the day.
