Here’s the thing about the Capitol Hill Block Party: it freaking rules. Anytime you have thousands of young people coming together, amazing bands playing amazing music, and the Bus front and center with popsicles and pledge cards in hand, you know it’s going to be outrageous. And it was.
This year’s Block Party was ridiculously amazing! The Bus’s Summer Fellows were Pledge to Vote pros – getting just under 1,800 pledges to vote in three days! Add that to hundreds of voter registrations and thousands of new friends (we see you, homeslices), and you have what is surely one of the best weekends of the summer!
Huge thanks to Dave, Kerry, Steve, Victoria and the whole team for organizing this crazy thing, and to our friends Kia, Smokey, Steven, Quentin and more for making it hum. The Bus had a blast, and we’re super proud to be a part of this amazing community that is artistically vibrant and politically powerful! We’ll see you next year, Block Party – watch out now!
