Mark Simon of Caltrain provides the following update.

We expect remarks by San Bruno Mayor Jim Ruane, the chairs of our two relevant boards (JPB and TA), a representative of our construction team and a host of other activities: Roughly from 11 –

Here’s the outline of the program:

The community festival would kick off with live music and tables provided free of charge for local vendors and organizations to provide information to participants, sell food or goods and promote their businesses or organizations.

Speeches will begin at 11:30 a.m.  At the completion of the speeches the speakers will do a small formal ribbon-cutting ceremony that will officially “open” the new station to the community.

Following the ceremony, the band will continue to play, refreshments will be available and a children’s balloon artist will be on hand for family entertainment.  Booths and display will remain open until 1:30, when the event will begin clean up.

I want to see some rubber ducky racing down the stepped fountain! It would be such fun to see the ducks bouncing down from step to step like slinkies. It's such a beautiful view from atop the new station when you look into the distance -- too bad when you look down it is marred by some really ugly spaces like the abandoned bank building and former tire center. Just hope that when the economy picks up no one builds high rises that will block the view. I also hope that people walking to/from the train station help business pick up on San Mateo Avenue. I find it really depressing how dead the street is when I walk to/from the station.
