“Our staff team welcomes our neighbors from throughout Washtenaw and Southern Livingston Counties to join us for this family friendly celebration of summer. It’s an opportunity for us to give back to the people we serve, offer them the opportunity to come together, connect with people from all backgrounds, and build a stronger community,” said YMCA CEO and president Toni Kayumi.

Washington Street will be closed to traffic so that the party can spill into the street.

The first block party took place in 2019, before the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
