Amazon Neighborhood residents have complained that there should be more events that bring people together in the neighborhood. This was not the case on Saturday at the corner of 24th and Hilyard St. Rhythm & Blooms flower shop set-up an additional tent outside of Humble Bagel to accommodate all those buy flowers for Valentine’s Day. Next door at Sundance Natural Foods, a bluegrass band gathered to play music for people shopping. Sundance also set-up outside with samples of coffee and morning treats.
The rain continued on and off throughout the day, but that did not stop residents from enjoying the free entertainment and food. I have found myself at the corner of 24th and Hilyard a lot this term. Not just because I have to, but it is a great place to shop and get lunch. There is always a hand full of people around, but never in the last seven weeks have I seen as many people as there were this Saturday.
