The night the Phillies won

The night the Phillies won the World Series and the subsequent spontaneous celebrations in the streets. (One of the favorite parts of that night was seeing Nunzio parading around in his truck and providing his daughter with a memory that she'll never forget. Great stuff.)

I think the night Lisa's band (rats, why is their name escaping me?) played at the Thursday night picnic. The kids were really into it that night - dancing around and having a great time.

The big spring cleanup and the subsequent (not in Fishtown proper) party at PBC.

Between all organizations and individuals who participated, we estimate that about 450 people were cleaning in Fishtown that day. It was amazing!

Technically this is an East Kenzo memory, and I've posted about it before, but it was definitely teaching three people how to use the voting machines on Election Day, because they'd never voted before.

I'm going to go with the night the Phil's took the series as well. It was so great to see total strangers hugging eachother and highfiving in the streets. I sprayed beer into the mouth of a man who was riding through the streets in a canoe that was strapped to the top of a car. Yeah, it was one of those nights!

Not Fishtown but I'd say

Not Fishtown but I'd say that one of my drug dealing, loud, filthy neighbors pulling away in a moving van. That was a cause for celebration.

How my friends and neighbors

How my friends and neighbors rallied around my children and I when we had our home burn down. I always knew Fishtown was supportive but we were truly overwhelmed by our community's response.
