Participants tell us the past events have been so successful that organizers decided to extend the party an extra block.

Several vendors, food trucks, performers, and the Wilmington Police department had a presence.

Participant, Alex Tsatso says the party did more than meet her expectations.

“I just run into all these people I know from all different parts of my life, and there’s awesome music and just seeing all the things people do in Wilmington,” she said.

Tsatos also says this was her first year attending, and she looks forward to next.
