Battle of the Bands
Last Saturday saw a Battle of the Bands style contest hosted by Burger King in Pinnacle Plaza. We think it’s a great way to encourage the teenagers in our neighborhood by providing them with opportunities to perform outside the school. Feel free to send us your photos of the event by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
