We have something very special here, Oak Cliff has a diverse mix of people, cultures, food, architecture, even topography, not found elsewhere in Dallas. When business owners, residents, and volunteers come together to put on an event like Bastille on Bishop and invite folks from all over the city to celebrate with us, we become invigorated.
