Main Street Block Party - Snakes Exhibit 9-1-2017
We were at the Gloucester Block Party on Main Street in front of Toodeloos Toy Store under the pepper lights. We had a native snake display and a bunch of other snakes for people to get up close and personal with. This was the second Block Party we participated in this summer and it was another hit. I'm not really sure who had more fun at the Block Party... the visitors or our volunteers. We just had a gas! Scads of people were lined up at our tent trying something most of them had never tried before... some looking, some touching, and some holding our snakes.
Besides our snakes there were three different stages with musical performances, the knife juggler guy Brent McCoy who was hysterical, dancers, henna tattoos, fried dough, face painting, and a whole assortment of other exhibits, arts, and crafts. The Main Street Block Party is really a great event put together by the Gloucester Chamber of Commerce and the City of Gloucester for the benefit of the community.
