Since 1947, on the Saturday following Mother’s Day, the Los Altos Kiwanis Club Pet Parade begins on Main Street, promptly at 10 a.m. From simple beginnings, it has evolved into the city’s most renowned civic event – a spring celebration that attracts thousands of kids, along with their pets, wagons, bicycles, parents and neighbors. It includes youth groups, marching bands, fire engines, and antique police cars. There is no fee to participate.

 

Los Altos Rotary Club Fine Art Show …

Since 1976, on the Saturday after Mother’s Day, and continuing through Sunday, the Los Altos Rotary Club presents its annual fundraising event “Fine Art in the Park.” Open each day from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m., and located in Lincoln Park just across Foothill Expressway from Main Street, it is considered one of the most prestigious art shows in California. This outdoor gallery features the fine art and quality craftwork of 200 juried artists from across the United States. The festivities include live musical entertainment plus a variety of food and beverage booths. Proceeds from the art show benefit local and international charitable projects.
