I love the 4th of July Block Party its a nice time for families to get out and enjoy a summer night. I'm curious about why its still held on Main Street and not down at the Bay State Green.....I have no problem with it being held on Main Street, just wondering if there is a reason behind the location ? Guess you would need to rename it as it would not be block party, maybe Party in the Park ?

Maybe expand the event to the Park? ..... Opportunity for more vendors, more music, more of whatever people want out of the experience.

It's kind of neat to have it downtown, I think. It's great and thanks to all who make it possible!
