Providing danceable music was an Arlington-based group, Stanley and the Undercovers, covering tunes from the 1950s, '60s and '70s. They range from Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" to Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" to Van Morrison's "Domino." Joining them were the Arlington High School Madrigal Singers.

The Friends of Robbins Farm Park is partnering with the Town of Arlington to raise money in support of the renovation of Robbins Farm’s redesigned playground. The goal is to rally the community to support inclusive -- not just accessible -- playgrounds, which are fun, exciting and challenging, not only for children with disabilities, but for all children and their families, group officials said.
