Pittsburgh Black Family Reunion 2010

I was contracted to take pics this year at the event.  I took over 1400 pics (not sure if I really needed to go that hard...) Here are just a few random (performance) pics from the event.....R&B star Bobby Valentino was the headliner for this family event.  It was held at Schenly park....and it is a huge park.  the event had vendors, activities for the kids, workshops as well as musical performances.  My only issue is that you can feel the effect of not having a Black/urban radio station anymore.  While this event drew a ton of people, there should have been a lot more.  The key here is: w/o the proper advertising it is nearly impossible to get the message to the people.  Print and web media is a part of the picture, but this is the area in which black radio shines, and has a leg-up on everybody.  Of course once Bobby Valentino hit the stage there were massive amount of people at the stage area....all in all a good event.
