Editor's note: Missourian reporter Pavan Vangipuram has embarked on a venture to showcase the ways that summer is spent in Columbia.

A videographer, Pavan plans to cover picnics and concerts, day camps, swim meets and more. The purpose is to reveal how the range of activities mirrors the diverse interests in the community.

We call it "Summer in CoMo." Watch for more of his videos in the weeks ahead.

COLUMBIA — About 300 people enjoyed music, face painting, a magic show and other family activities Wednesday at Family Fun Fest in Flat Branch Park.

The event is held on the third Wednesday of the month from April to September and is put on in part in part by the Columbia Parks and Recreation Department.

This month's theme was "Around the World," and the festivities featured live band Romani Blue with Gypsy Balidi and a performance from the Columbia Friends of China.

About 300 people came to Flat Branch Park Wednesday to enjoy music, face painting, a magic show and several other events. Next month's Family Fun Fest will be Aug. 15; the theme is "It's a Circus."
