A Grand Celebration
The 17th Street Market celebrated its Grand Opening on Friday, November 30th, 2018. Mayor Levar Stoney commemorated the opening of this long-awaited project with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting, kicking off an evening of entertainment. Performances included local band Weekend Plans, fire spinners from the Party Liberation Foundation, and Emerald Society pipe and drum.
