SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Despite the rain on Sunday, people still headed to the Philharmonic In The Streetz.

The City of Savannah, the Philharmonic, and the Edgemere/Sackville neighborhood association teamed up with one another to host the event in the Savannah Shines neighborhood. There was live music, dancing, and great food at the event.

One entertainer we spoke to said it was a day to bring everyone in the community together.

"When you look in the background, you'll see diversity and different types of people that are here from all neighborhoods. It's not just the neighborhood that we're hanging out at today, and that's the beauty behind what we're doing. We bring people out from everywhere, all across the city for a great cause," said "Magic" Marc Dunson, an entertainer and magician who was present at the event.

The Savannah Shines Initiative helps improve neighborhoods in the city and works to reduce blight.
