Collegiate Historic District Block Party Rescheduled to October 13, 2018
Saturday Oct 6 seemed to be a dress rehearsal for our big event on the 500 block of Broadway Street. From Friday afternoon on we had almost 4 inches of rain and radar wasn’t showing it slowing down, that led us to reschedule it to Saturday, Oct. 13 from 10-2 pm. We hope to see everyone at this fun event this coming Saturday!
