Bloomingdale Block Party and Pig Roast Coming Sunday, October 7th

From an email:

Mark your calendars!

Do you remember last year’s North Capitol Main Street neighborhood block party? There was the pig roast, the flamenco music, the beer zone, and yes, of course the rain… and all of us huddled under tents in a grand community moment.

Well, the party is back this year, in October (instead of August) this time. This time as well — bigger, better, longer, more fun and hopefully seasonally free of those storm clouds. We’re smoking another 300 pound pig, and the chefs of Boundary Stone and Rustik Tavern will be providing several side dishes for accompaniment. We’ll have music: a jazz band, a rock band, a DJ. There will be vendors in an artist village. You’ll find children’s activities, and pet activities, too.

Other fun moments… Do you remember last year’s pizza eating contest? It will be making a comeback, and we’ll possibly even add a wings eating contest (still TBD). We’ll make sure to keep you posted once we are ready to accept contestants.

Stay tuned! And mark your calendars for Sunday, October 7th.
