Summer Celebration | Slideshow
July 16, 2012 · Updated 5:17 PM
Despite overcast skies on Saturday morning and a few scattered rain drops, Islanders and friends from surrounding areas crowded into the Town Center over the weekend for the city’s annual Summer Celebration! event.
While it was cool during the Grand Parade on Saturday morning, the sun came out for the wide variety of activities in Mercerdale Park, featuring the Olympic Village, a nod to the upcoming Summer Olympics in London.
Local Olympians were on hand for the parade, along with the Mercer Island Community Band.
Crowds headed to Luther Burbank Park on Saturday evening for the annual fireworks display set off on the lake.
On Sunday, Islanders took in the car show, grabbed a snack and rode the train one last time before heading home.
