The City of Overland and the Overland Business Association will once again host the annual Block Party on Saturday, June 1 at the city's parking lot and pavilion located at 2510 Woodson Road. This years' event will feature a 5K run/walk, famers market, parade, carnival games, bubble bus, local artisans, live music, food, treats and fine beverages to enjoy.
After the parade, the evening party will continue at 4 p.m. with the Mayor’s welcome and recognition of the annual Overland Award recipients. Food and drink vendors will be operating the whole time this year. Carnival games and local artists will be setup from 4 to 8 p.m. As a special treat this year for the kids, we will have a Bubble Bus on site from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Our main entertainment for the evening will be the group "Volcanic Ash" on stage from 5 to 10 p.m. They played a great variety of music for the Block Party Event in 2017 and we look forward to having them back!
