First-Ever Summer Block Party Set for July 16


Lincoln Central Association (LCA) is excited to partner with Carnival Grocery for the first-ever Summer Block Party on Saturday, July 16 from noon – 3 p.m. on Dickens Ave.

This family friendly block party will offer fun, food and activities for families and adults. For kids, the event will feature a local fire truck, face painting, a balloon artist, games from Lakeshore Sports and Fitness, music and more. Adults can enjoy some complimentary food and drinks from both Carnival Foods and Gemini Lincoln Park.

The event will raise funds for LCA. LCA’s mission is to inspire people to join together for the social, cultural, and physical enrichment of the neighborhood. We work to beautify and preserve the neighborhood; ensure an open and fair process for developers and homeowners; work with the Alderman and local law enforcement to improve neighborhood safety; and much more.

The event is free and open to the public.
