BLOCK PARTY 2013 PHOTO ALBUMS & VIDEOS

Well, for the sixth year in a row, Block Party proved to be the best day of the year. Thanks to all the rad bands and people that contributed to make this day absolutely the best Block Party yet. The weather held up til the very end and gave many talented photographers and videographers the chance to document much of this family affair. Below you will find links to photo albums, live videos, and even a time lapse of the day contributed by a total of SIX friends. Go check them out and show them support by liking their page or re-posting their links. You can also see all the photos that were printed by the GuppyPod (thanks Frances!) by searching #communityrecordsblockparty on Instagram.
