A street party held by the merchants of the Gore Street shopping district was cut short due to a severe thunderstorm, but many made it to the celebrations before the heavy rain moved in. The organizers crammed in a lot of things to do and see in the three hours that Gore Street was closed to traffic. From noon to 3pm, people could participate in soccer, yoga, tennis, golf, arts and crafts, children’s games, face painting and more. Food from local establishments on the street were also featured.
The afternoon street party was held to celebrate the many changes to the area as part of the Gore Street revitalization that is attracting new shops and businesses to the street.
