The YMCA of Downtown Manchester, located at 30 Mechanic Street, invites the community to its 5th Annual Rock the Block celebration on Saturday, June 8 from 1 – 3 p.m. This free, family-friendly event is open to everyone in the community.

“The YMCA of Downtown Manchester is incredibly excited to host the 5th Annual Rock the Block and to also celebrate the YMCA’s 175th birthday,” said Troy Laprise, Executive Director at the YMCA of Downtown Manchester. “This is our chance to thank our members for their support and welcome the community.”

The 2019 Rock the Block will close Mechanic Street to vehicle traffic, which will allow for a safe experience for pedestrians and room for activities and vendors. Featured activities include a live DJ, games, bounce house, arts & crafts, face painting, giveaways, and more. The event will also have food, popcorn, and lemonade.

Newly added this year is a corn-hole tournament. The winning team will receive a 3-month membership to the YMCA. Anyone interested in participating is required to pre-register at this link: https://bit.ly/2vNgpyj

“Serving families has always been at the heart of the Y, and events like this brings the community and families closer together,” added Laprise.

In addition to the events taking place outside on Mechanic Street, attendees are encouraged to take a tour of the branch. Anyone that attends the event and joins as a new member will have their join fee waived.

The YMCA of Downtown Manchester is proud to announce there will be a check presentation made by Wells Fargo during the event.
