Despite the less than perfect weather forecast, we had a great turn out (250-300 people) and a fantastic time. We gave away a barrel of raffle prizes, ate over 400 ice cream bars and popsicles and enjoyed 3-hours of entertainment from neighborhood musicians and dancers. Share your feedback about the event and let us know your ideas for our next neighborhood gathering. Email your picnic pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org or upload them to our facebook album.
