Now in its seventh year, this alcohol-free event celebrates hip-hop, from DJs, MCs, breakdancers, graffiti writers and more.

Dust off those old Kodaks and picture this: Fire hydrants spewing water, turning small puddles into street lakes. Popsicled sweetness sliding down sweaty palms. Old school hip-hop pounding the pavement.

Taking place Saturday at Hawthorne Recreation Center, 12th & Carpenter Sts. Food provided by the Latest Dish.
