Marin French picnic spread

Picnickers enjoyed the musical stylings of Bay Area reggae band Iriefuse and had a first-hand opportunity to watch local artists ply their talents. Artists included the Barboni Family, Samantha Buller, Linda Carter Holman, and photographer Mike McClure.

Live music at the picnic

“For the first time we had local painters and a photographer join us as well, which was a nice addition to the festivities,” added Elyzabeth. “We’re grateful to all of our participants and delighted that our annual picnic continues to draw such a crowd, even when the temperature is unseasonably high.”
