Bell Street "Park" Fest
Well, there was an official shindig to celebrate the opening of Bell Street "Park." They closed Bell between 2nd & 3rd and brought in the big guns. We're talking face painting, oversized checkers and chess, a band that played Van Halen covers and a food truck selling expensive grilled cheese sandwiches. I suppose a good time was had by all. I just stayed around long enough to take a few pictures. Here they are:
Sorry that these photos aren't more interesting. It wasn't a very interesting event. But the band did sound like they knew their way around a Van Halen tune. They were just packing up when I arrived on the scene. As for the "park" itself, oh, it's pretty unsightly. Three million bucks and that's the best they could do. I still think it looks like some kind of crazy traffic revision.
