Jazz musicians from Wellesley High entertained, as did percussionists Jorge and Inesh. Ice cream, lawn games, the playground and good food kept everyone entertained and full of energy.

Also on hand were Rachel Voci and her mom Melinda, who had a table for Adriana & Rachel’s Mobile Library, which provides free books and personalized reading to kids. They frequently set up shop at Waltham parks, but hit spots in Wellesley, too. The mobile library will be at the Barton Road Community Center at 4:30pm on Tuesday, Aug. 27).
