First-ever block party set for Sept. 14

PRINCETON — The First Presbyterian Church of Princeton will host its first-ever block party on Saturday, Sept. 14. The party will be held on the church lawn on the corner of Park Avenue and Euclid Avenue, starting at 3:30 p.m.

People don’t have to be in the neighborhood to be a guest. Everyone is invited to attend, they just ask that attendees bring a dish to pass for dinner. The church will provide the burgers, hot dogs and drinks.

Live music will begin at 3:30 p.m., with the Broken Piano Bench band performing. Dinner will be served around 5 p.m. The Walnut Community Bible Church band will begin its musical performance at 5 p.m. People can bring lawn chairs and sit and enjoy the musical entertainment throughout the evening.

There will be fun and games for all ages, popcorn, snow cones and watermelon. There will also be a chicken bingo game — everyone gets a chance to play to win.
