Set to a soundtrack of live music by the Danny Meyer Band, Burleith's summer picnic drew a crowd of young, old, and in between to enjoy beautiful weather, abundant food and drink, and activities ranging from the ever-popular Top Dog contest and raffle, to face painting and cookie decorating, to a petting zoo and hands-on demos from GERMS. Ward 2 councilmember Jack Evans and ANC-2E commissioner Ed Solomon also made appearances. New this year were information tables sponsored by DC Water's DC Clean Rivers Project, DC Department of Energy and Environment, Georgetown Neighborhood Library, Yates Field House, Burleith Garden Club, and the Historic Designation Committee.
