DARIEN — Light and intermittent rain didn’t douse the fun at Weed Beach Fest last Saturday.

“This is our second annual, so obviously it’s a learning curve,” said Pamela Gery, director at the Parks and Rec Department, which hosted the event.

Numerous volunteer staff members were on hand to help run the games, organize various vendor tables, and help keep the band playing music on a stage near the east side of the beach.

“Though we had an unpredicted rainstorm that came and went,” Gery said of last year’s event, “the feeling from the community was that the event was a huge impact to the town.”

“They’re very excited to be back,” she said.
