Patriotic Fun Caps Off CAG's Concerts in the Park
With Georgetown toddlers and youngsters at the ready, the Citizens Association of Georgetown celebrated this year's finale to Concerts in the Park July 13 with a patriotic celebration and parade at Rose Park at 26th and O Streets, NW.
Singer Laura Tsaggaris and her band belted out some lively country-pop tunes, as the little ones -- along with the grown-ups -- sampled free ce cream cones from Haagen Daz, snow cones or hot dogs from TTR Sotheby's, which also handed out its blue balloons. Long & Foster had a photographer for special shoots and a prize give-away. Nancy Taylor Bubes of Washington Fine Properties gave out frisbees for coloring and other crafting. Sprinkles cupcakes handed out red velvet or vanilla cupcakes. Also, parked next to the park was Glover Park's Surfside food truck.
Children kept the July 4th theme going with red, white and blue streamers, glasses, pinwheels and tried to march in front of the stage in a straight line.
