St. John hosts a summer block party
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 by Tai Moses
Summer is the season for doing as much as possible outdoors. The St. John Neighborhood Association has decided to take the concept to heart with its first-ever neighborhood block party. The shindig will take place – where else? – at the St. John Neighborhood Park on Saturday, June 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature free food and (nonalcoholic) drink, live music and fun activities for the kids. District 4 Council Member Greg Casar will be on hand as will several community groups including GAVA (Go Austin/Vamos Austin). Expect a crafting station from Austin Creative Reuse and the group Parkside Projects will bring frozen treats from its new Tex-Mex restaurant ¡Vamonos! The ostensible reason for the party (as if we needed a reason for a party) is to celebrate the park’s recent renovation as well as some other signs of progress in the North Austin neighborhood including a 4-acre multifamily development called The Legacy at St. John.
