This month’s theme
Playground: The Rec Room of the Block:
An evening of activities that explore the alley’s role as a meeting place for tinkerers, game-players, and neighbors. Far more than infrastructure that serve practical functions, alleys are gathering spaces for out-of-the-way play.
Join breakdancers, skateboarders, barbers, and ping-pong players as they transform the alley into a night of nonstop fun and games curated by Missy Perkins and John Ibarra with Que4 Radio.
