“Last Friday, Washington Gateway Main Street put on their annual summer community event, the South End Summer Soulstice. We had five local musicians perform, and our community partners like the South End Community Health Center tabled in Blackstone Park. We closed down W. Brookline Street for people to enjoy Boston Food trucks and a beer garden and lounge hosted by Hive. The event had a great turnout of locals and residents from all over the city.  We heard over and over that there should be a community event like this in the park every week, as community members loved having a place to meet and listen to music outdoors. We hope the event introduced Washington Street and the South End neighborhood to Bostonians who had never been before, and helped bring community members together for a fun night.”
