Activate! presents:

This week’s Activate! was inspired by two recent FB posts about parties that happened in RVA around the 4th of July – a backyard party at Alex’s house and the Power Plant concerts (pictured here with Pearl and Herschel Stratego). At 5pm, I’ll give you a sample of the musical fireworks that have occurred on this holiday over the years.
