(b) No person shall engage in, participate in, aid, form or organize any assembly or group of people or make any speech or conduct any musical program or festivities in a park unless a permit has been obtained from the Office of Code Enforcement and unless such permit is carried by the person heading or leading such activity, provided, however, that the provisions hereof shall not apply to students' work when constituting a part of their educational activities and under the immediate direction and supervision of the proper school authorities, nor to any governmental agency within the scope of its functions.
(c) Whenever any group, association or organization desires to use park facilities for a particular purpose, such as picnics, parties, weddings or theatrical or entertainment performances, a representative of such group, association or organization shall first obtain a permit from the Office of Code Enforcement for such purpose.
