I wish they would stop allowing dogs on the walk, they are nothing but a nuisance. Every year people around me on the walk complain about them but think that dog owners will always win the day even if they are a significant minority. At least keep them on short leashes and ot those long ones that get tangles up with people's legs.

I agree about the dogs - the starting point has steep drop-offs on each side and the later part by the baylands has a lot of water if high tide, or black sludge if low tide. I did that walk this morning and there were still dog walkers with multiple dogs on leashes and they have to stop to pick up the poop. The dogs really enjoy it all - they are busy socializing with each other so crossing in front on their leashes.
The festivities are really fun - that is a great event for the festivities.

Terribly planning and coordination. This event completely blocked off access to the Palo Alto airport. There were no signs warning of the closure in advance and no detours. The policeman I spoke to had no idea how vehicles were supposed to get to the airport.

Don't miss out on the discussion!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
