Big Block Party Tonight on Aurora Street

The city and the Downtown Business Partnership are throwing a big block party tonight to celebrate the re-opening of the Aurora Street bridge above Six Mile Creek, and the 100 block of N. Aurora Street, between State and Seneca Streets.

Music will be provided by IY at 5 p.m., and the Horseflies at 7.

There will also be roving street performers such as jugglers, magicians, and stilt-walkers.

The bridge and the street have been closed since the spring for repairs and renovation. The most noteable change is the elimination of most parking spots on the block, to accomodate larger sidewalks for expanded outdoor dining on a street now being promoted as Restaurant Row.
