It's been one year since the Love Grove Community was plagued by a train derailment.
A train ran off the tracks June 28, 2013 blocking the only roadway entrance that allows residents in and out of the neighborhood.
Saturday, Love Grove residents commemorated a day of frustration and anger, with a day of celebration.
Residents gathered at the Archie Blue Park for a day of fun, food, and music.
Ron Sparks, a former Wilmington City Council member spoke at the event and urged residents to continue supporting the fight for a second access point.
Sparks said the community has been pushing for a second access point since the 1980s.
The neighborhood will get that new access if a transportation bond is approved by taxpayers.
The bond is scheduled to be up for referendum in November.
