Presentations
Williamsburg, VA is known for its historic districts, and especially the popular Duke of Gloucester Street. In this presentation by PKN Williamsburg organizer Dale Weiss (from the city’s Vol. 1), we are shown a whole other part of the city that is usually hidden behind gates.

Maxim Zirin is a TV producer. Together with a reporter and a cameraman he went to Chukotka to shoot a piece about how local people hunt whales for a weekly programme on Russian’s NTV. Chukotka is the northeastern extremity of Asia, in the northern part of the Russian Far East. Please note that some of the images included in the presentation (in Russian, from PKN Moscow Vol. 10) are graphic.

Posters
We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with the 7-11 inspired example that you see above, for tonight’s PKN Nashville Vol. 7 — held on 7/11, get it? Also up today are posters/flyers for PKN Kansas City Vol. 11, PKN Cape Town Vol. 17, PKN Warsaw Vol. 6, and PKN Banja Luka Vol. 1.

Photos
We have two photo galleries to share today, the first for this past Saturday’s PKN Marseille-Provence Vol. 19, which also marked the series 5th anniversary — which explains why the crowd is holding a celebratory candle in the photo above. We had a tiny peek at Mallorca‘s Vol. 1 last week, but today we have a more complete gallery to share.

Calendar
As we mentioned earlier, PKN Nashville Vol. 7 is happening tonight, and then tomorrow you can look forward to a packed evening: PKN St. Louis Vol. 9, PKN Regensburg Vol. 9, PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 2, PKN Wakefield Vol. 6, PKN Galway Vol. 7, PKN Blue Hill Vol. 4, and PKN Kyiv Vol. 8.
