The North End Block Party is happening this Saturday, April 25th, from 1 to 4PM, taking place at Donovan Park at the Macdonough School - 66 Spring Street.
It is a free, family-friendly event for all, right after NEAT’s Annual Pride Day. There will be a celebration of the North End’s vibrant community and a chance to get to know your neighbors, along with food, games, kid-centric activities and live entertainment. Families will also be coached on how to create a family health history.
The AmeriCorps members and The North End Action Team (NEAT) have joined forces to create a neighborhood block party to unify a wonderfully diverse community. The goal is to create community engagement as well as supporting activities that generate health and wellbeing in the North End community. A number of city businesses, as well as the Middletown Police Department, will also be volunteering their time or donating activities and food.
The Block Party features family friendly games like kickball, basketball and bingo, activities like hula hooping, bouncy houses, gardening and face painting activities as well as a BBQ, all for free! In addition, all Block Party attendees will be entered to win a raffle featuring prizes from city favorites including but not limited to Krust, Eli Cannon, NoRA and Mondo!
