TRURO – The first-ever B-Side Truro Hip-Hop Festival brought a lot of energy to the town’s Civic Square Saturday.

The event drew an excellent crowd to enjoy breaking, hip hop, rapping and DJing, with the day set to wrap up Saturday evening at the Farmers’ Market for an after party for the 19-plus crowd.
There were demonstrations and a chance for the audience members to learn some of the moves, themselves.
Local dance groups and individuals also took part.
