Top 10 photo galleries on Valpo.Life in 2020

By: GreatNews.Life Last Updated: December 30, 2020

If there’s anything we’re known for here at GreatNews.Life, it’s the countless photos we capture at nearly every game, every gathering, every celebration. Although 2020 was different, our coverage team was able to capture those new moments and new changes. Whether it was high school or college graduations, holiday parades, sports championship games, or gatherings to distribute food and supplies to families or frontline workers in need, we did our best to stay safe this year, remained flexible with all that was being thrown at us, and tried to take care of ourselves during the chaos and uncertainty. We took thousands of photos in 2020, and we think it’s a pretty great recap of the good that happened throughout Valparaiso.

In no particular order, here are the top 10 photo galleries on Valpo.Life in 2020:
