With the days of summer beginning to dwindle to a precious few, Jessup Grove Baptist Church will be offering a last chance for summer fun for all ages Saturday as it hosts a free Community Block Party beginning at 4:30 p.m.
The event will begin with a registration period, with door prizes to be given away at registration and throughout the evening.
The opening will be followed by a puppet show at 5 p.m. An assortment of games for all ages will be on hand, including a bounce house, an obstacle course, corn hole and balloon art. Prizes will be awarded at some children’s games.
A meal, featuring hot dogs, chips, drinks and dessert, will be served beginning between 6 and 6:30.
Live music by various local artists will be featured throughout the event.
According to event volunteer Saundra Yates, the end-of-summer block party is being held to bring the community together and to provide families and individuals with a fun event just before the start of school.
“Everyone is welcome and we want to emphasize that everything will be free of charge,” she explained. “We just want to share the love of Jesus with our community.”
Jessup Grove Baptist Church is located at 896 Jessup Grove Church Road in Pilot Mountain.
