The Riverwest neighborhood was my first paramour with the city.
As a teenager, it romanced me out of the sticks and into its active show scene, coffee holes and thoughtful bathroom graffiti.
Riverwest means different things to me now--no longer just a hide out, but a diverse and rapidly evolving creative creature. With its tasty smells, real humans playing real rock and roll and award winning People Watching, the Locust Street Days festival was a fond reminder of why I fell hard for the neighborhood in the first place.
Do you have a favorite street festival you are looking forward to?
