A pop-up park has appeared on State Street in downtown Los Altos this summer as part of the City of Los Altos' First Street Streetscape Improvement Project. Construction work shut down the intersection of First and State Street from early July to mid August, so the city and local supporters felt it was an exciting opportunity to create a public gathering space downtown: The State Street Green!

DIfferent businesses are contributing to the fun by sponsoring free events for the public to enjoy. An array of concerts and shows have been put on for family fun entertainment in addition to Exploratorium Exhibits every Sunday, Story Hours by Linden Tree, Music and Performers by PLAY and lots more exciting stuff!

The Bubble Man was a big hit. The kids spent the 2 hours running, jumping and clawing at these orbs of soap as they flew through the air. No one left the green without popping at least one bubble or capturing at least one image on their smart phones! 

There's also been a concert series worth grabbing some lawn for! The band Orange Sherbet stopped by the green as guests of Bumble and PLAY! to put on a show for the little ones and their families.

 The Happily Ever Laughter Faeries performed some great Faerytails and face paint. Also Furs, Scales and Tails Live Animal show and "Yoga on the Green" with Stretch.Play.Yoga were a blast as well!

Though the Green is being rolled up on Monday, we've made so many fun memories out in the DTLA sunshine. Stop by tonight for some live music in front of Outer Space Art Gallery @ 5pm. 

And we'll see you next summer State Street Green!
