The First Presbyterian Church of New Canaan celebrated Memorial Day at its second annual community-wide barbecue following the town parade May 26.
The church grounds were filled with families enjoying the attractions, including water slides, an obstacle course, face painting, a petting zoo and pony rides. Visitors partook of home-style barbecue fare while listening to the singing and acoustic guitar of Nick DePuy.
The highlight of the celebration, according to event chairman Stephan von Jena, was a dunk tank featuring the ministers of the church, the Revs. Paul Gilmore and Kibbie Laird, as the "dunkees."
