Among some of the plans for the day:
Sidewalk Chalk displays
Nail Driving Contest
More activities have still to be finalized.
Food will also make for part of the vibe, with Fry Bread available, as well as the popular watermelon eating contest once again back for the bravest of heart and largest of appetites ...
Those that take in the days events will also be eligible for a number of giveaway planned through the course of the Block Party.

Fraser Street Block Party on Saturday August 19th from 10 to 3
Now celebrating year number Five, what has become a popular mid-summer street event got its start back in 2012 with the first edition, growing with each successive year as more and more local groups become involved in the festivities.
Funding, prizes and volunteering for events is coming from a number of Prince Rupert sources, many of them located on the three block stretch of the city.
Updates on the Block Party as it gets closer may be found through the Friendship House of Prince Rupert Facebook page, while there you can explore some of the many services that are offered through that Fraser Street organization.
