Fitzhugh Street's eclectic neighbors and creative commoners are once again amping up for another block party on September 21. Count that number two for this year.

This past spring's event, Full Moon on Fitzhugh was wildly popular, turning out all ages in community celebration complete with live music, beer and food. On site art-making and face painting are just a few extra perks that added to the festivities.

This fall Uriah Maczala, neighbor and event organizer, has collaberated with Sean Kenny, proprieter of the newly established Pickle Fort to create a new dynamic.

In conjunction with the block party, the Pickle Fort will be hosting open mic performance art. The open mic is restricted to avant garde and unusual acts only. So get wierd folks.

The Pickle Fort will have its doors open from 2-9 p.m. At 2 in the afternoon a performance parade will kick things off. Anyone with no musical talent can participate. Bring noise makers, wear a costume and paint your face if you like.
