Folks flocked to Fruita tonight for the first annual block party. The event was hosted by the Fruita area Chamber of Commerce and local business owners. The event started at 5pm and lasted until 10pm.
They had live entertainment, extended business hours and a beer garden sponsored by the rotary club. They raffled off prizes and had an awards ceremony for a local cross country bike race.
This is just the first block party planned by the Chamber. They are planning two more block parties on May 23rd and June 6th.
