Looking for some fun in the sun? Head on down to South Jamaica for a block party hosted by State Senator James Sanders jr. and sponsored by the Baisley Pond Block Association.

The block party will feature a hula hoop contest, face painting, musical chairs, a Memory Lane dance contest, and more.

“I am proud to partner with our local community organizations and leaders to co-host this summer block party in South Jamaica,” Sanders said. “It will be an opportunity for residents to come together, meet their neighbors, make new friends and enjoy some fun outdoor activities in a safe environment. This event is one of many small ways we can promote unity in the district, and I believe such social activities are particularly important in these challenging times when there is so much happening that can divide us.”

The block party will take place at from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The event is free of charge. In the event of rain the block party will be rescheduled for July 23.
