Block party to celebrate Fayetteville's All-America City recognition


The city of Fayetteville will host a block party to celebrate winning the All-America City Award from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday on the Festival Park promenade, behind the Festival Plaza building at 225 Ray Ave., according to a news release.

“We’re extremely proud of what Fayetteville has to offer, which led us to this accomplishment,” City Manager Dougl Hewett said in the news release. “Earning this title is indicative of our community and how proud everyone is to live here.”

The party will feature music, ice cream and fun activities. Representatives of city departments and commissions will provide opportunities to learn more about city services and civic engagement, the release said.

The block party will precede the Fayetteville Woodpeckers game against the Charleston Riverdogs at nearby Segra Stadium.
