A diverse crowd celebrated the Fourth of July on Monday at in Los Altos, where classic American Independence Day music and festivities abounded.
From colorful shave ice to a dunk tank, the “Glorious Fourth” opened the festivities with the Ye Olde Towne Band, followed by a host of speakers, including Los Altos Mayor Ron Packard, Los Altos Hills Mayor Ginger Summit and former Los Altos Mayor John Moss.
“Let us be grateful for living in this fantastic area of America,” said Moss. “Today, the Fourth of July is to celebrate the foundation of blessings; let us develop a sense of gratitude for (our ancestors') sacrifices.”
At the wooded, 3.7-acre park, the young and old were entertained with music from the Ye Olde Towne Band as well as a petting zoo, balloon art, face painting, a guessing jar and an authentic barbecue lunch from Armadillo Willy.
