Hundreds of families gathered along the Jenks Trail and in the fields behind Town Center for the Third Annual Bedford Walkabout and a performance by the Party Band, the first event in the Summer Concert series. There were also activities near the Common, including an art show in the Gallery@First Parish.
There were toddlers and babes in arms
At least one darling dog, and a hungry pony
Add in some activities
A walk’n’read storybook
Some artful stuff
An energising demonstration
And a preview of the band concert!
Shall We Say Thank You?
