Finally, Kallio's very first Block Party was held today, thanks to so many volunteers, artist and what ever that worked hard for free, to give us this uniting day in my neighbourhood. I'm bit bummed that the weather wasn't as perfect as it's been for the whole week, but rain or not, lots of people took part in the fun.
There were three stages, one for DJ's and two for varying bands. There was music performances from different genres and something for everyone. Graffiti artists, picnic area, pop-up stores and what else! The stores in Flemingingkatu, the street where all this was mainly focused, were open and having Block Party sales and serving drinks and small snacks.
To see so many beautiful and creative people all gathered together to celebrate this unique and diverse neighbourhood was just a joy. Can't wait for the next one!
