August 2011 gallery hop after 9pm.
I am not posting this to scare anyone but to inform and encourage people to get involved in helping taking this event back.First Fridays are a nationwide tradition in every city.And Richmond is entitled to have that as well.
This is the type of activity that was going on for approximatley 1 hr to an 1hr and 1/2 on aug 5th 2011,Richmond ,Va First Friday Gallery Hop.As you can see,crowd behavior like this is a bit scary.And i feel were very lucky that it didnt escalate itnto something worse.
This is not the usual behavior in dowtown Richmond,Va,much less a First Friday gallery hop.It's been indicated by the local media that there were gangs from other areas of Richmond and even Hopewell and Petersburg causing the disruption friday night.
This situation is NOT hopeless, lets try to improve it and at the very least contain it so that the businesess and people can continue to thrive in the city of Richmond,VA.
Let's redirect the youth into activities that get rid of their aggression,for example,physical and creative activities ,like sports and art,so they have another outlet for their energy not only on this particular night but others.
