Thank you to everyone who helped make the launch to the 1st Sunday Block Party a success! On July 1st, approximately 2,500 people joined us at the 1st Sunday Block Party on Fulton Street. Attendees enjoyed a special performance and juggling workshop by San Francisco’s own Circus Bella, free dance/movement workshops with Alonzo King LINES Dance Center, an interactive exhibit by the designers from NONAPS at the Village Artist Corner, block printing tutorials by Jenny Lemons, a LEGO build station by the Department of Children Youth and Families, and more!
