Just in from Christian Dutcher:
The Block Party will take place on Friday and Saturday. Music, stunt shows and other entertainment will span from 3pm through 10pm. (We'll update the website today) The final schedule with all of the bands names and the map will be updated March 10.
The Block Party will occupy the Canada Street block that Shepard Park spans (Amherst St. to Montcalm St.).
We agree that it's fun to walk Canada Street and check out all the bikes, and we think that the Block Party (and the Expo relocation and the new section of bike parking on Canada Street) will add to the excitement. People will still be able to "bike gawk"
but now there will be a big, fun feature just slightly up the road which you can breeze into for free.
