The block party will offer games, photo booths, snacks and hay rides. The Salisbury Police Department will bring the N.I.C.E Truck, providing free ice cream.

The highlight of the evening will be results of a competition between Partners in Learning Catawba and Partners in Learning Novant.  A “penny war” is being held beginning Oct. 21. The culmination will be at 6:45 p.m. at the block party, when Executive Director  Norma Honeycutt will get a pie presented to her by the director of the winning site.
