Assemblyman Dario Frommer (D-Burbank) ushered in the first day of
summer with a community block party at Johnny Carson Park on
Saturday. Despite dreary skies and cool temperatures, an estimated
2,000 people attended the event, which the legislator hosted for the
second straight year. Those who turned out got a chance to meet and
speak with Frommer, as well as state Sen. Jack Scott (D-Burbank).
There was free food, music and entertainment, appearances by Miss
Burbank, Kareen Dickson, and Miss Teen Burbank, Aijia Guttman, along
with games, arts and crafts, and face painting. Several community
organizations and city departments were represented at the party,
including the Burbank Police and Fire departments, the Boys & Girls
Club of Burbank, Burbank Department of Water & Power, Friends of the
Burbank Public Library, Joslyn Adult Center, Media Dance Centre,
Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, YMCA of Burbank and The Walt
