The next stop of the Nike World Basketball Festival was the Converse Block Party at the Banneker Community Center in DC, where Converse arranged a park-wide celebration consisting of live music, food, sport, and all-around good times. Hip-hop stars The Dream and Stalley and up-and-coming artists Tanya Morgan and Fresh Daily of Converse Rubber Tracks performed live for the attentive crowd, while a few others played some ball in the revamped basketball courts arranged by Converse. Those in attendance also got to check out the Converse Pro Leather WBF Pack firsthand (available now) while enjoying the free goodie-bags and t-shirts. The Converse Block Party continues on this Summer at select cities, with Harlem, NYC being the next stop on the agenda! Check out the recap of the day’s events below and stay tuned for more World Basketball Festival coverage as well as additional info on the Converse Block Party.
