Close to 200 kids and grown-ups spread out on blankets and chairs in Rose Park July 9, nibbling all types of picnic fare — as well as free Sprinkles cupcakes and Haagen Dazs ice cream — at the season’s third and last performance in the Concerts in the Parks series, sponsored by the Citizens Association of Georgetown. They swayed, clapped and sang along with familiar tunes rendered by the Market Band, a lively local group playing guitars, banjo and other folksy instruments.   

The Friends of Rose Park supplied a bounce house and a face painter for the kids during the evening event, along with tables with crayons and art materials. Other children romped on the playground, bounced and threw balls of all sizes, played with assorted puppies and pooches, ran in circles, laughed and shouted as parents, grandparents and neighbors watched and relaxed on the mild summer Sunday.
