No one had to stop for a red light in town center
In spite of dire warnings over mosquito borne illnesses --a modern day biblical scourge -- thousands of regular folks, young and old flocked to the downtown for a first of its kind event: Celebrate Amherst Block Party.
Performer on stilts had a great view (as did AFD)
Local businesses set up tents all along the stretch of North Pleasant Street after it was shut down by a blockade of DPW dump trucks on both ends leaving almost a half mile of asphalt suddenly car free. Thus creating the biggest party this town has seen since the last major Hobart Hoedown.
Even after the season opener blow out they still let Sam The Minuteman out in public
Only at this one, thankfully, no incidents of disturbing the peace.
