End of summer block party to be held in downtown Auburn

The party will be from 3-7 p.m. Thursday, Sep. 2.

The Downtown Auburn Cooperative is hosting its End of Summer Block Party from 3-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 2.

The party will be at the B Street Plaza between Main Street and the Safeway parking lot.

Attendees can enjoy music at the party performed by the Rio Rockers from 3-6 p.m. and the Auburn Symphony from 6-7 p.m.

The Downtown Auburn Cooperative recommends attendees bring their own chair and dinner to the event. However, there will be a beer garden for the age 21-plus crowd.

The Cooperative will also be collecting cash donations for the businesses affected by the Max House Apartment fire which is just around the block from the party.

The Downtown Auburn Cooperative is a nonprofit organization led primarily by volunteers, according to its website. The Cooperative has been around since 1988 and its mission is to improve, promote and preserve the downtown area.

Attendees are encouraged to wear masks even though the event is outside, said Cheryl Rakes, president of Downtown Auburn Cooperative.
