      Punta Gorda Block Party

      The first Punta Gorda Block Party featured Minnie Pearl as the headlining act. Gussie Baker, still involved in the Party, was one of the original organizers. After its resounding success that first year, city officials asked the volunteer organizers to continue the event on an annual basis. And that is how the committee was formed. The makeup of that group of community-minded group of citizens has changed over the years, but the same small committee of volunteers devotes countless hours of time to organize the event. More than 80 nonprofit organizations benefit during the Annual Block Party. Each year in April the downtown Punta Gorda area has a block party for all to enjoy. Since it's inception in 1987, the celebration was to promote the rejuvenation of downtown, helping charities and getting together with friends. It's become a principal source for non profits, service organizations, schools, youth and school sports teams as well. Crowds come from all over to this event and enjoy the entertainment which is usually a favorite of many. Vendors line the streets with fabulous foods to tantalize one's senses. The kids area has games and shows. Other sorts of vendors are on site for all. The multi stages have entertainment all day. Come on down and make a day or evening of it.
