Business owners say they wanted to showcase the community and have something positive for people to do. “It’s to give back, show love, that this is a nice place to live. I rate it number one in all of the communities I’ve been in across the nation,” said Clifford Wallace of M and C Automotive.

Organizers say they hope to hold more block parties and even hold a live pet adoption in the future.
