Day in the Park draws large crowd

On May 23, eight churches from the Hagerstown and Pennsylvania area joined forces to sponsor A Day in the Park in the bandshell pavilion at City Park in Hagerstown.

A large crowd was on hand to enjoy the Sounds of Zion from Zion Baptist Church, Christian rap from Tyree Sterling and some "stepping" from a step group from Zion Baptist Church.

There was free face-painting and balloons for the children.

According to Leysa Burnett, from Ebenezer AME Church, it was a blessing to feed so many people.

She said there was plenty of food for everyone.
