Several thousand people showed up today to the 20th street block party sponsored by Noise Pop,  a Mission-based music promoter. The party was also a chance to celebrate education and immigrant right activist Rosario Anaya, and raise money for the Mission Language and Vocational School that will be named in her honor.

Food, vending, and music filled the four block radius and the line for entry went around the block by the time I had left.
