The State Street Area Association and Ashley’s are hosting the block party to celebrate UM’s homecoming with the community this Friday in downtown Ann Arbor. The event will take place along North University Street between State and Thayer streets from 3-10 pm Friday, 10/31/14. At Friday’s event, there will be music, entertainment, food and drinks. A DJ will be spinning music on the north side of North University between tents that will be placed in the area between State and Thayer streets. Because the event falls on Halloween, there also will be various child-friendly activities, including jugglers and face painting. State Street Area Association members will also be handing out treats as part of the Halloween festivities from 11 am to 5 pm.
