JHU/community block party set for Sunday afternoon

Convergence, the annual JHU/community block party, sets up shop for its seventh go-round from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 18, in the 3200 block of St. Paul Street. Students are invited to join residents of neighborhoods surrounding the Homewood campus, and other members of the university community, for an afternoon of free food and fun.

The family-friendly event, sponsored by the university’s Office of Community Affairs, includes hot dogs, popcorn, snow cones, moon bounces, carnival games (with prizes) and other entertainment, plus an opportunity to meet representatives of community associations and nonprofit organizations.

Last year’s event attracted more than 1,000 attendees and 50-plus exhibitors.
