Tree Lighting, Pancakes with Santa & Holiday Stories this season

Join the bright festivities, share pancakes with Santa, and hear to a story or two along the way.

December 2nd @ 5:30 pm

Join hundreds of residents and the mayor of Menlo Park for our annual Holiday Tree Lighting. All are welcome to Fremont Park, where you’ll be treated to live music and a roving Santa Claus, not to mention free cups of piping hot chocolate.

December 3rd @ 7:30 am

If you’ve never shared a pancake breakfast with the North Pole’s favorite resident, then here’s your big red opportunity. Activities include letter writing and crafts tuned to the holiday. Bring your appetite to the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center.   


December 10th @ 11:00 am

Tom and Sandy Farley are a storytelling team that goes by the moniker “Spontaneous Combustion.” Since 1979 they’ve entertained the city at camps, fairs, and book clubs. Join them at the Menlo Park Library for holiday tales of wisdom and inspiring stories.
