Aloha! To freshen things up this year, we’re having a Hawaiian Luau theme, so we invite everyone to wear tropical garb. Everyone will be greeted with a lei upon arrival and will enjoy the sounds of steel drums as they meander around the festivities.
Several area restaurants will be offering food with a tropical twist, and we’ll have more traditional items, such as pizza, hot dogs and burgers, as well. As in years past, sodas and water will be available and the beer truck will be serving ice cold draft beer, as well as white and red sangria.
This year, the Amesbury City Councilors have volunteered to man a dunk tank, so come on down and take your shot! There will also be balloon creations, face painting, pony rides and various other activities for the children. At 7 p.m., the crowd will be treated to a professional hula & fire dance performance!
For those who don’t know, the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce Block Party is a fundraiser for the Chamber’s charitable foundation. One hundred percent of the proceeds go towards the beautification of Amesbury, including those lovely hanging flower baskets you see currently around downtown. For the fundraiser to be successful, we rely upon donations from the community. For example, area restaurants donate portions of food, which we sell for a couple tickets. Tickets can be purchased by the public at the equivalent of $1 per ticket. Food, drink and fun is purchased for a couple tickets each, but what you get in exchange is valued at much higher than the ticketed cost. We thank everyone for your support of this great cause! Mahalo!
