Celebrate Youth. Celebrate community. Join in the fun at the 4th annual Pennington Street Block Party on Friday, April 20 from 4:00-7:00 p.m.
Fun for all:
–carnival games & more
Plus this block party will feature a food truck roundup as well. Got an alert that Shaka Shave Ice (delicious Hawaiian style shave ice wagon) will be there.

My husband and I have been to this urban block party in the past, and have enjoyed the teens’ enthusiasm and creativity, with art, performances & their quest for knowledge. Pennington Street is usually closed between Stone Avenue and Scott Avenue for this event, which is located west of 6th Avenue downtown.
