Holyoke Block Party 2009
Following on the success of our New Years Gala at the Wistariahurst Museum, Citizens for the Revitalization and Urban Success of Holyoke hosted a Block Party on Sept 6th, 2009 from Noon to 7pm!
The Block Party took place on Chestnut Street between Hampden and Dwight Streets adjacent to Veterans Park and Holyoke Catholic School. This location is in the heart of our beautiful downtown area, and is within a block of the main Post Office & City Hall.
We had a huge list of offerings including local restaurants, a healthy food area & farmers market sponsored by the YMCA, theater & dance performances, and a variety of music throughout the day on Chestnut St.
In addition, Mad Science, the Children’s Museum, and the Holyoke Blue Sox provided children’s activities such as face painting, slime tables, and pitching cages in Veterans Park.
