We learn about Saturday’s East End Street Fest con Corazón on Navigation Boulevard and discuss how Harvey affected the neighborhood.

The annual East End Street Fest con Corazón is a community festival boasting a diverse array of musicians, artisans, and other events along a three-block stretch of Navigation Boulevard. This year, proceeds from the festival will be donated to ongoing Harvey relief efforts.

To learn more about the festival — and to get an idea of how Houston's East End was affected by Harvey — Houston Matters talks with two guests from the Greater East End Management District: Veronica Chapa Gorczynski, the organization’s president, and Dan Joyce, its marketing director.
