Rock the Block brings out big crowds for fun and festivities

After the success of a series of downtown block parties, some downtown area merchants off of Main Street decided to try an alternative location for another block party and Rock the Block was born.  According to organizers, some 56 vendors participated in the event and the nice weather came in after an early shower and the crowds came out.

Stanley Street between Main Street and Webb Avenue was closed along with a side street and the area was filled with tents and tables and exhibits.  In addition some events were held across Highway 70 and the crowds milled about to see a live owl and exhibits from the TWRA.

A great crowd attended.
