Ushering in summer and the end of the school year, the City of La Vergne parks and recreation department is preparing for the annual Block Party at Veterans Memorial Park this weekend.
The free event is scheduled for May 7 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. There will be food trucks, vendors, music and activities for the whole family. Staff is taking extra measures to make sure that vendors are properly socially distanced.
To mark the 50th anniversary, the grand prize for the annual cornhole tournament is an all-weather set of cornhole boards featuring the City’s 50th anniversary logo. Teams will compete in round robin play to a single-elimination bracket. There is a limit of 50 team slots available. Teams are encouraged to sign up online but walk-ups are welcome if spaces are still available. The cost to register is $20.
There will also be a free Movie in the Park to wrap up Saturday’s event. The screening of Clifford the Big Red Dog will begin at the park at 8:00 p.m.
