Summer’s Not Over Block Party

September 11, MORNING

9am-noon in the artPARK, 325 Main Street, Coshocton, OH. 

School starts. Pools close. The weather remains hot. This is what we’ve come to expect yes?

Can’t beat it? Join it! FAKE BEACH is what we’re thinking. The Coshocton Fire Department will be putting a diffuser on the hydrant in front of the artPARK. Bring your towels so you can play in the spray. Where there are firemen opening hydrants there are firetrucks to explore. Which one of the children you know wouldn’t want to check out the new city ladder truck?

Thanks to a donation from Rural King, we’ll have pools full of sand for building castles.

Add some chalk, music, a bicycle coffee cart sent down to us by Jenny Penny’s Café with coupons for breakfast or lunch, the farmer’s market across the street and….LIFE IS GOOD.
