There’s a party downtown and everyone is invited.
Friday marked the July Downtown Block Party on the Eastbank. It’s an event that occurs every first Friday of the month, June through August. It’s free to the public.
The block party features food, music and fun for the kids.
Event coordinators say in the past 16 years they’ve had the downtown party, June was the busiest they’ve ever seen.
Event Director Maureen Ohm said, “It’s a similar vibe to last time. We had a record-breaking block party last time. Our formula must be working.”
Ohm said she estimates that 2,000 people attended the June block party. She hopes even more people come to the last one of the summer. It’s on August 2.
