huevoicesdotcom @ 3rd Annual Park Heights Festival
Park Heights Renaissance, Inc.,an organization dedicated to the social and physical redevelopment of the Park Heights community located in Northwest Baltimore, hosted the Third Annual Park Heights Festival in conjunction with National Night Out 2010, an initiative set forth to promote crime awareness and police solidarity with communities across the country.
Blue and pink ribbons and balloons wrapped around street lights along the corridor of Park Heights Ave as music echoed throughout the streets. Community residents both young and elderly crowded into a parking lot at Pimlico Racetrack to enjoy the festivities.
Several programs including CFUF (center for urban families) were on-hand to offer their services. Public officials presented citations to community workers, while touting togetherness and collective responsibility.
