September 26, 2017
South Side's 22nd Street was closed to traffic on Saturday, Sept. 16th so 325 neighbors could enjoy live music, delicious food and each other.
The fifth annual South Side Neighborhood Street Party hosted by South Side Community Council and Ormsby Recreation Center welcomed children with face painting, balloon artistry, a bounce house and games. Lee Robinson & ISKA entertained with jazz and Strange Brew followed with blues and rock and roll.
