One of two neighborhood block parties happening this summer took place Friday in Rochester.
Play-ROC’s Play Streets turns neighborhood blocks into safe places for kids to gather for a fun event before school starts again.
Friday, Treyer Street was shut down while the event took place.
It features games, healthy snacks, skateboarding demonstrations and more.
“We wanted to make it more positive somewhere for them to come, feel safe and play,” says Evette Colon, event organizer. “This is the time that we dedicate to them, we show them that we’re here for them, they get provided lunch, snacks. And it not only helps us as families and parents but it helps the kids.”
A second event is taking place on Monday on Greeley Street in the Beechwood Neighborhood.
