#HIKETOHELLGATE17 – an Open Gallery Show

Monday May 15 @ 7:00 PM

You may recall the successful Instagram meet-up back in March when 80 people participated in a tour from Socrates Park to the Hell Gate Bridge as part of the Hell Gate Bridge Celebration held by the Greater Astoria Historical Society.

It was an opportunity to not only take pictures and meet new people, but to learn about the community.

Group leader Steve Vasquez of @Queenscapes has selected the 30 best images form that memorable day for an exciting new exhibit or our community and its people.
