A lot of neighborhood people came and enjoyed the food. The only complaints I heard were that they ran out of tickets so some of us went hungry and that there didn't seem to be a lot of vegetarian options.There were some Boy Scouts walking around and picking up trash and a few older gentlemen decked out in full Lions' gear. Shaan Indian Food, though not listed above as participating, had a veggie item or two, Farmer Joe's had potato salad and macaroni salad and I think some of the pizza places had cheese pizza. Flavor Brigade provided ice cream!
