    Any Block Party towards the end of October like we’ve had with great success for 2 or 3 years in a row? So much fun and a chance to dress in your Halloween costume and listen to live music, etc.

  5. Nic Diaz, October 3, 2016:

    The Fiddlin Fest on Oct. will cover almost all of Broad Street and will feature two live music stages! Harbin’s Hero Run will be in the morning before the festival and we encourage you to dress up all day!
