Screams and laughter were heard at the Woodbridge Recreation Department’s Summer Camp as Harlem Wizard “Road Runner” performed his basketball moves and got some campers and counselors up to do some tricks of their own. Campers danced to the energizing music and some received souvenir posters for volunteering to “assist” in the show. Woodbridge’s Recreation Department, Library, and Youth Services sponsored the event.
