Catacomb Party. What can I say? Biggest party ever? Doesn’t even cover it.
Seriously, 40 musical acts all scattered throughout the Fulton Mall over a 12 hour period. Live mural painting. Beer, oh beer. A handmade market and a line of mouthwatering food trucks. An indoor pop-up lounge hosted in a building that is for lease with a DJ and the pinnacle of downtown fashion- Misc. all set up ready to send you home in better clothes than you came in. Skateboarding demos. The iBike Fresno Bike Valet. I saw someone doing charcoal portraits on the sidewalk. All of the friends. Oh god, I hugged so many sweaty people my arms ache and I can’t lift them.
I’ll admit, after six hours I headed home, which is why I’m blogging instead of still partying. Give me a break, I’m still recovering from Summer Death Cold 2013. But those six hours, man. It was hot and no one even cared.
I’m exhausted and happy and thankful that Fresno is a place where things like this can happen and people come out in mass and are wonderful to each other. Here’s a few photos I got of the day. Did you go to Catacomb Party? What were you favorite moments?
