A Summertime Block Party to Remember

A Summertime Block Party to Remember

On June 8, the Sabathani Community Center hosted a “Summer Summer Summertime Block Party” to kick off the summer and celebrate the end of the school year. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather, with blue skies and a cool breeze. Best of all, the community came together for an afternoon of fun and connection.

Here are just a few highlights:

  • Vendors from the People’s Market MPLS
  • Numerous community organizations sharing their resources, including the District Office of Rep. Ilhan Omar (with Rep. Omar herself joining the festivities!)
  • Delicious food trucks and a fun bouncy house
  • Soul Line Dance with Tina Jackson
  • DJ Q Bear spinning the tunes
  • A basketball tournament organized by Don’t Shoot Guns, Shoot Hoops
  • Roller skating with Twin Cities Skaters
  • Double dutch jump rope with Pros of the Rope
