Tag: Fire in the Fourth
Last year’s inaugural Fire in the Fourth festival—commemorating the Great Fire and the neighborhood’s later revitalization—attracted more than 5,000 attendees. This year organizers are hoping to go twice as big.
Summer's almost here and there's plenty of fun to be had, from festivals to art exhibits to outdoor movie nights.
A devastating fire seems like an unlikely catalyst for celebration, but this past May, Old Fourth Ward residents debuted Fire in the Fourth, designed to honor the neighborhood’s resilience and celebrate its more recent revitalization from 20th-century blight.
