The Memorial Park Conservancy held its annual Picnic in the Park event, this year channeling the charm of the French countryside.

And a similarly fun evening, hosted by Peter Remington and Karen deGeurin at the Redneck Country Club, featured a cowboy-cool fashion show with looks from Pinto Ranch, modeled by local celebs like Roger Clemens and Nina Magon.
