Flores-Gambino 51st Annual Memorial Day Picnic

This year marks the 51st annual celebration of the Flores Gambino Family Memorial Day Picnic, in the Penrose neighborhood off Columbia Pike. This year featured a bit of singing and dancing in the rain.

Homegrown live music was the highlight again (with some special guests like local punk/rock legend Skeeter Enoch Thompson, and Trevor Young, lead guitar player from the group SOJA), homemade covered potluck dishes of every taste and description, barbecue, relatives, friends, neighbors, moon bounce for the kids, and much good cheer.

Thanks again to Maria Flores, Joe Flores, Maria "Pete"Durgan, and the whole Flores Gambino clan. Great hosts, South Arlington icons - and they know how to throw down and party, every year since 1965. All good, all good.
