Moshpix: The 28th annual World's Largest Block Party rocked out this past weekend for two days of live music and lots of lots of beer drinking. Ben Folds Five and Lifehouse headlined the entertainment this year. The event is a fundraiser for Old St. Patrick’s Church, one of the oldest churches in the city and a survivor of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
