It was a warm Wednesday evening for last week’s Family Fun Night in Community Center Park, the second of three events scheduled for this summer hosted on July 18. The Community Center Park fills up with music, activities and people on Wednesdays, with the third and final edition scheduled for tonight.

The free event features booths operated by the Riverbank Parks and Recreation Department, as well as community and business organizations. In addition, the recreation department is providing a water slide bounce house to help attending youngsters beat the heat.

It also helps that the east end of the park is covered by the deep shade of mature trees. Performing musicians benefit from the shade cast by the Community Center building while they play and sing.

Tonight’s event is the last scheduled for this year, with the start of school just a few weeks away. Hours for the Family Fun Night for July 25 will be from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
