Irises Cafe & Wine Bar and GoPlattsburgh.com are teaming up to organize a Block Party at City Hall Place Downtown Plattsburgh. The event will take place on October 7th from 1-4pm. All of the profits will go towards the Strand Theater Restoration Project. The street will be closed for one block and the event will take place under a tent.
There will be live music from Jay Lesage, Zip City Blues and Mike Pedersen, as well as a silent auction with lots of goodies.
The businesses that are participating are Irises Cafe and Wine Bar, DeLish Cupcake Bakeshop, The Pepper, Latitude 44 Bistro, Cheechako Taco, Olive Ridley’s, Essex Pallet and Pellet, Smooth Moves, Koffee Kat, Champlain Wine Company, Foster’s Tent and Canopy Rental, Greater Adirondack Ghost and Tour Company and more.
A $10.00 entry fee includes five tasting tickets and a commemorative
glass. All additional tasting tickets are $1.00 each (kids are free
admission). Admission Passes are currently available for purchase at
Irises Cafe, The Pepper and Champlain Wine Company. A picture ID is
required for beer and wine. Tickets can also be purchased at the event, but there is a limited amount of commemorative glasses.
Kids activities include pumpkin painting, candy bucket decorating, s’mores roasting,
pellet pile prize diving, treat tasting and more! Children are encouraged to wear
Halloween costumes. We would like to thank the SUNY Plattsburgh volunteers and Project Help for their support.
"This is something we wanted to do to celebrate 15 years and it really highlights the Strand Theater and what it will do for all the downtown businesses once it is up and running. This is shown by how all the local businesses have come together to put on this event." -Carol, Irises Cafe and Wine Bar.
