It’s almost here! This year’s Turners Falls Block Party is only two days away. We hope to see you downtown on Saturday during the party, which will begin with a parade at 3pm and continue until 10 with live music, food, and fun for all ages on Avenue A and beyond.
Many people, businesses, and organizations have contributed to making this year’s party happen, but it’s not too late to pitch in. On Saturday, there will be lots of opportunities to help. Just show up at:
8am - to help set up the tents that will protect music and equipment (we need lots of hands)
9am (and after) - to set up stage & equipment + green room for performers
noon - to block off streets, hang signs, set up another tent, and help vendors get situated
2:30pm - to help with or be in the parade
3pm (and after) - to staff tables, assist with kids’ activities, and run last-minute errands (Come to the RiverCulture table for an assignment.)
10pm - to help break it all down and clean up
We would also like people to take photographs of the event to have on file and someone to estimate attendance at various points during the day.
We’re also still looking for a few important items:
* Stakes for attaching signs to
* A truck to hold full garbage bags and drive to the DPW after the party
* Non-toxic art supplies suitable for collage and painting
* Lots & lots of duct tape
* Good weather!!!
If you can help, please let me know -- or just come down to Avenue A and stop by the RiverCulture table on Saturday. See you there!
