“A lot of time and resources have gone into revitalizing the building completely to make it an accessibly third place for people to gather,” Macy Lethco, Program manager at Pattern, said. “We just want to draw people to this new gathering space.”


In true Month of May fashion, attendees of the block party were also able to live out their racing fantasies with a race car simulator.
