MainStreet Cleveland's Sharon Marr, who has been involved in the last 10 Block Party events as MainStreet director and attended the event prior to that, said that what was at one time the police handing out candy became what is now known as "Treat Street."
"M&M?Mars provides candy for 'Treat Street', and helps hand out the candy with assistance from the Cleveland Police Department
"Treat Street" originally was located on Broad Street, just north of the courthouse, and situated so families who attended the Halloween events on Centenary Avenue could walk down Broad to "Treat Street."
said that this year, "Treat Street" will be on Church Street which not only expands the area of the Block Party, but also moves it closer to where it began, at the Cleveland Police Department
"We really want to thank M&M?Mars for being involved for so many years with our Block Party," she
said that businesses and nonprofit organizations are invited to participate in the Block Party again this year, but must register for space at the event.
said over 20 such vendors have already registered, but there are still many spots available.
"This is a fundraising opportunity for nonprofit organizations, schools, ball teams and church groups," she
"Businesses can showcase their products, sell items and food, and offer treats to thousands of area children.
"It is a fun-filled family event, and the booths lining the streets around the Courthouse Square that are set up for various groups and businesses complete the festive atmosphere and bring a feeling of nostalgia to the evening," Marr
