Commercial Drive Street Party Part 2
7:00 pm - 12:00 am
1657 Charles st
Last May, up to 10,000 people attended the first ever Commercial Drive Street Party. As people gathered in Grandview Park, local bands played folk tunes and hundreds of free hot dogs were given away at a free BBQ potluck. When night fell, thousands took to the streets and danced until the early hours of the morning.
This time, we think we can do it much better.
We are calling for everyone to bring themselves, their sound systems, drums, and anything necessary to create the biggest decentralized party this city has ever seen. The summer is almost over and the days are getting shorter; let’s come together before the winter rains drive us back inside.
While the VPD recently released a statement warning organizers of “unlawful” events, we do not believe we need a permit to come together and reclaim space. These streets are ours and we intend to take them back.
Protests don’t need to be boring, see you in the streets.
