Attend the Hessler St. Fair and Beachland Ballroom and transport yourself to New Orleans or San Francisco or Paris or Casablanca or some other worldly place for a much needed head trip.

Reminder

  Mental get-away--Also, the STAR project is just a few walkable blocks from Hessler St.
 

Party on Cleveland :)

FREE stuff for KIDS

 

Show the kids artists at work--this weekend, too.

  So much to do.

(And, while I love artists--I don't like to discover yet another CDC mushrooming in NEO...will some one please tell me why we pay for all of these organizations?)

Hessler St. Fair

 

I attended yesterday and listened in to most of the acts via WRUW 91.1.

Thank you to everyone who made the event so special! As a former resident of East 116th and East 115th streets--Hessler St. holds special nostaligia for me.  Organizer Andy Kessler spoke on the radio on the original and on-going significance of the event as a call to arms for residents.  

We are all Hessler St. residents. The City of Cleveland is bull-dozing neighborhoods--don't give in.  Stand up for your rights! 

And hit the tour with the new French-inspired American PEACE revolution!

Vive la liberté!

I really wish I had photos of the kids playing in Harmony Park, but for some  reason, it felt like a sacrilege for me to photograph them.  They were so beautiful and happy.

For some really great photos from previous years--check out the photos of Jay Levan.  Props.  Great smiles.
