#EveryVoteCounts rally turns into a Philly block party (and we love it)

Calling out around the world, are you ready for a brand new beat? Philadelphia's answer to the question Martha and the Vandellas asked their 1964 song is still "yes."

KYW's Antionette Lee captures the spirit of Philadelphia in this photo she tweeted at 6:20 p.m. last night.

As the nation watched, Philly danced.

Okay, we still don’t officially have a president. And, yes, inside the Philadelphia Convention Center, ballots are still being counted. As I’m writing this, 85,000 votes.

But outside the Convention Center, everything from classic Philadelphia soul to klezmer music to Don Omar moved Philadelphians into celebration yesterday. And props where props are due — everyone was wearing a mask while dancing (except for that dancing mail box in the last video 😉 ).

So, here’s to having more reasons to dance on the streets.

Here’s to our amazing city.
