The Greater Mankato Area United Way is hosting a Block Party on the 500 block of South Front Street. We will close the street from Pub 500 to Pita Pit on Saturday, July 18.

The event will start at noon. There will be fun, kid–friendly activities provided by G&K rental, Mankato Family YMCA and Caricatures by Casey. The restaurants on the block will be vending food. Music provided by Hot 96.7.

And then of course the main attraction will be the United Way Human Foosball Tournament presented by Jack Links. We have 30 team that will compete beginning at noon. An award ceremony will take place around 5pm. Three courts have been build and all materials were donated by Lloyd Lumber. Our three court sponsors are Lloyd Lumber, First National Bank Minnesota and Scheels.

All proceeds from team registrations and sponsorships will go to support over 30 partner agencies of United Way. The event is free to attend and open to the public. We want lots of people coming down to check it out!
