Nativity holds 31st annual Carnival

Nativity School in Menlo Park will kick off summer with its 31st annual Nativity Carnival fundraiser on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 10-12, on the school's grounds at the corner of Oak Grove Avenue and Laurel Street.

Patrick O'Hare, who is co-chairing the event, expects the carnival rides, food vendors, silent auction, and free live entertainment to draw thousands of people. Event hours are Friday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday from noon to 11 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.

More than 175 silent auction items range from $35 gift cards to Buck's of Woodside to one month of boot camp at Menlo Fit. The raffle grand prize is a Toyota Prius or $15,000.

Steve Machado is the other co-chair of the event, which is run by Nativity Parish volunteers. All proceeds benefit Nativity Catholic School.
