This Sunday, April 28, the City of Palo Alto will celebrate its 125th birthday with a party at King Plaza (in front of City Hall). The event begins at 12:45 with musical performances, followed by a ceremony at 2pm. During the ceremony, the Palo Alto Historical Association will open a time capsule sealed 25 years ago. This and more will be followed by cupcakes and the opportunity to view the time capsule contents inside City Hall.
Bring a lawn chair and a hat and enjoy the opportunity to reflect on where we’ve been and where we are going as a community. In the meantime, you can brush up on the history of College Terrace (which is older than Palo Alto!) via our own history page.
