Food offerings will include Chef Chu's chicken salad, Mojo Burgers, Maui Wowie smoothies, Skip's Pizza and grilled bratwurst.

In the wine and beer tents, three California wines selected by Vino 100 Los Altos will be poured by the glass.

In addition to face painting, the entertainment schedule for May 16 will feature the Los Altos High School Jazz Ensemble (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.), Sam Rudin – Boogie, Blues and Jazz (1-3 p.m.) and The Jazz ConneXion (3-5 p.m.).
