Video recap from the Conrad Street Block Party shows a vibrant, diverse East Falls.
Seems like everyone in the Falls came out September 28th to celebrate our neighborhood’s second “Main Street.” The party of the year included food truck, bouncy house, yard games, beer wagon and live music.
Wow what a band! Shout out to Mackenzie Day (Conrad biz & property owner) for finding Zee, a local Rastafarian who once played with Bob Marley’s Wailers and now grooves with a rotating and collaborative group of musicians that doesn’t have a band name or anything.
These guys could play! They kept the party going with funky Reggae and rock classics well into the evening, shutting down as a random, torrential rainstorm whipped through the area around 10pm.
Fun Fact: When Zee’s not playing, he’s owner/operator of a mobile car washing detailing business. That’s how Mack met him — sometimes his business brings him out to Conrad Street (your best bet to catch him here is probably Saturdays).
Nice job, neighbors! Big hand to the businesses like The Petrone Team (who brought the bouncy house) and Billy Murphy’s for keeping the beer flowing. Shout out to the big family reunion who anchored this end of Conrad with happy vibes and charcoal grilling. Thanks to EFDC for supporting this fun, unique event that celebrated many facets of our neighborhood.
