Vinton Street Creativity Festival

For the second year in a row, the Vinton Street Creativity Festival re-energized the historical Vinton Street Community.  There was never a dull moment in the day with all the bustling activity. Thank you Habitat for Humanity for all your contributions to the event.  Thank you Vinton Street merchants for sponsoring the amazing bands and performers on the stage.

We also got to welcome Vinton's newest resident, the Apollon, that weekend.  We are excited to have you in the neighborhood!

The chalkboard conversation pieces let everyone express what they love about the neighborhood and life in general.
