Rock the Block - Sat. 9/8/18

Dine • Dance • Discover Downtown

The Village of Lake Zurich will host its 6th annual Main Street block party, Rock The Block, on September 8, 2018 from 5 - 11 pm.  Planned as an all-ages traditional street dance, partygoers are invited to Dine, Dance and (re)discover Main Street Lake Zurich. Three live bands take the stage for an evening of music, food and fun, and young party goers can visit the face painter and balloon art, sponsored by Lake Zurich Tire and Auto.

The event will be held on Main Street in Lake Zurich, (approximately 70 E. Main Street). To accommodate the event, Main Street will be closed from Church Street to Old Rand beginning at 10:30 am on the day of the event.
