A Wing and a Fair
College Park Day Festival at Aviation Museum Soars
An estimated 6,000 people joined in Saturday’s all-day community celebration known as College Park Day.
The event, hosted by the city at the College Park Aviation Museum, included a kids’ fun zone, live bands and performers, lots of exhibitors and vendors, and food and craft beer from local restaurants.
Terps were easy to find: More than 20 UMD departments, clubs and performing groups participated, students volunteered at many of the booths, and the rest were just enjoying themselves.
Members of the Wild Anacostias, a brass band, pose with Miss College Park Daja Benton and her Miss College Park Junior Princess mentee at College Park Day. The band led a New Orleans-style parade through the event.
