Dia de los Niños
Pescadero’s annual children’s literacy festival returns to Puente on April 27th from 6 to 8 p.m. We invite families to come and play, receive books and school supplies and share a meal, all to remind our children how important they are to us and plant a seed about the delights of reading.

April 10 and 12, Puente youth staff and students from Pescadero High School will visit and tour California State University Monterey Bay, Santa Clara University and San José State University. Unlike traditional college tours, students will meet with faculty, college students, student services staff – and even get to tour some dorms.
