Around the Terrace: May 3, 2022

Here are some recent announcements and news stories of interest to College Terrace and the surrounding area.

  • Fireworks after Stanford Baseball on Saturday
    Stanford Baseball will be hosting the Cal Bears at Sunken Diamond on Saturday at 6pm. With an estimated attendance of 3,000, this game may generate heavier traffic before and after the game. A fireworks show will commence shortly after the game and will last for about 8-12 minutes. For details please contact Julia Lee at or call the Stanford University Noise Hotline at 650-724-4900.
