The 13th annual Park Potomac Ice Cream Social for Charity featured a parade with police cars, fire engines, vintage cars, pom pon girls and former Washington Football Team great Dexter Manley as the event’s grand marshal. The goal of the event: to donate thousands of backpacks filled with school supplies for schoolchildren.
