Photos from Yelp’s Summertime Street Soirée

Remember that awesome Yelp event we posted about a few weeks ago? The one that was to basically be a huge block party in downtown Orlando, featuring food and beverage from fantastic local businesses? Well, as it was touted to happen “rain or shine” it certainly did this past weekend (with lots of rain!).

Despite the rain–and perhaps because of it–those in attendance had the best time and made some lasting Central Florida memories. If you couldn’t make it…well, you missed out. Here’s a peek:

What’s ironic–and some might find irritating–is it was a gorgeous day in Central Florida on Saturday, but the rain decided to come exactly during the timeframe of this Yelp event. The rain didn’t phase Colleen one bit. She made the best of it and somehow inspired others at the event to not only have a good time but ultimately dance in the rain. Who’s da bomb?!

Are you Yelping yet? If not…see what you’re missing?! An opportunity to connect with others in the area and be part of a very special community.
