Block Party, Street Fest, Monticello Road Celebration
Pantheon Popshop was one of many local businesses sharing the love at the block party. [More Photos]
The Tom Tom Fest closing party at the Bridge was alot of fun. There was live music (WTJU broadcasted live all day), food, drinks and alot of fun.
We set up one of our pop-up photo booths and gave away dozens of on-the-spot prints. As I explained the project to people, they instantly understood and we were no longer strangers.
There was lots of great sharing, as I received gifts of burgers, fries and beer, but the best one was cameraderie. The party might have been a one-time thing, but it was a good one and a terriffic way to celebrate the project's anniversary.
It was wonderful to see so many people come together with the simple purpose of celebrating one another.
