Scenes of the Summer: Park Heights/Towanda Rec Block Party

(Photo Story) - Block parties have a long and enduring history in Baltimore. The campaign - Youth Bmore Summer Block Party tour sponsored by the city of Baltimore and others continues that tradition with summertime block parties held across the city this summer which included entertainment, crafts and food. Spending just a few moments at Towanda rec made me reflect on summer camp and boxed lunches in the 1970's and playing baseball with the Astros, Padres, Athletics and Royals for neighborhood supremacy. Although rain cut the event short, it did not prevent the community from enjoying some energetic performances from some of DMV's most talented artists.(photos by cgreen -
