Thousands of people attend the Hometown Block Party every year in downtown Pell City.
The Pell City Chamber of Commerce, who organizes the event, continues to bring the community together in this over 30 year tradition. The event will be held on June 1 in downtown Pell City on Cogswell Avenue from 3 – 9 p.m.
“Growing up in Pell City, I always looked forward to the Block Party! It is a great event that brings our community together for a night of fun for all ages!,” said Pell City Chamber Executive Director Courtney Hobson. “We could not do this event without the support from our community and our event sponsors. We hope that you and yours join us on Saturday, June 1. A great way to kick off summer!"
