Block Party is canceled


With 90% chance of rain (and it sounds like 100% chance of wind), we are canceling the Friday, Sept. 3rd Block Party.

We are particularly disappointed because the Docksiders were scheduled to play, but we felt this was the responsible thing to do in order to give restaurants a chance to cancel food orders, change staffing patterns, etc.

Thanks for being a perennial cheerleader for the block parties, and here’s hoping Gloucester still has a terrific weekend, Earl notwithstanding,
