Paran Choir, and Machelle Booker. Local resident Deborah Bledsoe arranged this year’s event. The latter half of the day is led by C-Grimey and DJ D-Whit, and features a Step Show competition with local UTC fraternities and sororities and a dance competition for children of all ages.

There will also be a celebration of a local fresh food farm stand by Grow Hope Urban Farm, presented by Hope for the Inner City. 

Glass House Collective will set up a streetscaping installation to show the importance of permanent design improvements on the street. The street will be shut down and local residents and visitors to Glass Street will have a chance to experience what Glass Street could look like. Neighbors can share their feedback and ideas with Glass House Collective, then relax and mingle on the Hip-Hop Lounge bus, or visit the bouncy house and pop-up skate park presented by Kim Krause, Westin Dawson, and the Black Rebel skaters.
