High Street was awash in people attending the 11th annual Belfast Summer Street Party Monday evening.

The weather was perfect to sit and enjoy the rock-n-roll favorites of Captain Obvious in front of City Hall or grab a partner and start moving to groove.

The "party of the summer" descended on Belfast at 5 p.m. and went on until 10, with many hardy partygoers staying through to the end.

A big favorite for kids was a mechanical bronco ride, challenging riders to stay upright while the bull zigs, zags, dips and turns.

Other activities for kids included bungee jumping, a rock climbing wall, a big inflatable slide, a bounce house and face painting.

Artisan Pasco Grove demonstrated his chainsaw talent by masterfully cutting a new city bench from just a log.

And, as if by magic, High Street Tuesday morning looked exactly like it did before the party, thanks to a team of well-organized volunteers.
