FREE

– Live Music & DJs
– Youth skate competition

The Precita Eyes Mural Center puts on the event. Every year 200 to 300 people show up and organizers think that it’s a good way to keep kids out of trouble–given the 200 cans of aerosol paint that are used to make art on the walls, instead of tags on public spaces.

Extra incentive: the best art pieces are kept and shown throughout the year at galleries. The city’s Parks & Rec Dept even gave them their blessing this year by absorbing the cost of the permits.
