Here are a few photos I shot during the setup of the party.

I also shot a few short videos of Extra Action Marching Band, our surprise special guest that close out the party with a bang.

Here’s’s video of David “Cappy” Capurro doing his “War Pigs” Yo-Yo act.

Andrew Mager also shot video of Cappy from another angle.
