Thank you, thank you for creating 3rd Thursday on California Ave. It's such a fun, fabulous event. The music is outstanding and I love the joy of the children and adults dancing in the street, sipping wine with friends, eating dinner, and browsing the open shops all along the closed lit up Cal Ave while enjoying the ambience. It is a warm needed celebration of neighbors and community coming together to have a really good, happy time! I, now, always look forward every month to the next 3rd Thursday!:)

It was wonderful connecting with you this afternoon. You are incredible. Palo Alto and the greater community is so very fortunate to have you.
The changes you have made already are phenomenal!"
"The inaugural Third Thursday was a huge success. The music was a great mix of styles and it is clear that people were drawn to
Cal Ave for this event.
Good job on getting the word out!
The restaurants were packed with people having a fun night out and the music really encouraged people to stroll with friends and family. Watching the very young ones dancing to the music was a highlight. It was a wonderful family evening.
Congratulations on a terrific new event!"

"Hello and thank you!
Such joy and connection in the town last night at Third Thursday. I absolutely loved strolling down California Ave and stopping at all of the music sites. We had dinner there and also dessert, patronizing our favorite restaurants on this great walkable avenue. Love the people in the street and NO CARS.
Families and people of all ages and abilities! Such a diverse crowd, too, it felt like a tribal gathering for May Day.
I'm so grateful you're helping bring live music to Cal Ave. I love it. I've lived nearby for almost 40 years".

"Congrats on a very successful event yesterday! It was nice to finally meet you in person. The music was all very high quality.
Our friends that came with us wanted to have dinner somewhere on the street so we headed down over to where the jazz band was playing and enjoyed the wine bar atmosphere until the event was over.
I could tell it truly revived a lot of the restaurants up and down Cal Ave because I have gone there many times on a Thursday evening where it was just dead".

"Hello, we attended both Third Thursdays and greatly enjoyed the music and the energy of the street.
This last evening, June 15th, was especially wonderful due to the outstanding music of Wobbly World (and the charming music of Fete Musette). Will Wobbly World be performing at another Third Thursday? Will Fete Musette be returning?
Thank you for organizing these wonderful evenings - we are very appreciative".

"The energy and ambiance generated by 3rdThursday's event has brought
so much life to California Avenue.
Our business thrive on those nights and our patio as well as the street fill up with families enjoying the local businesses and the positive atmosphere!
Thanks to this event, we have gained new customers who have already become repeat dinners at La Bohème!
Bravo to the organizing team!"
