Block party helped by the name and date change
Seems like the block party committee was on the right track when they shifted the date and changed the name of the former Somerfest celebration in August.
Re-christened the "Church Hill Block Party," the revised event took place Oct. 1 -2 in the parking lot of St. Anne's School.
"The attendance was way up from last year and the year before," said Ann Erlitz, organizer of the event. "And it wasn't just people from St. Anne's - they were from all over."
