Boombox the Wasteland or What to Do With Union Corners?


This was a  festival that took place at Union Corners, a LARGE vacant lot that is still waiting for some businesses.  That day, there was some.  And what a party! There was a parade, free ice cream, art, and entertainment. Also all boomboxes were tuned to WORT for music timed for the performances.

This was a fun festival, but soon things will finally start happening to this wasteland. An agreement was finally signed to develop it.  I will update later, perhaps after its completed (may be a few years).
