ALSO NEW TO NELA....
The Eagle Rock Block Party (ERBP) is a monthly event comprised of local and independent retail businesses located in Eagle Rock, California.
Each Second Saturday of every month, merchants will be participating day and night attracting devoted and new customers with special promotions, live events, music, special discounts, classes and demonstration for both kids and adults. The evening hours will coincide with the monthly NELA Gallery Night which provides maps to local galleries and their current openings on that evening.
The ERBP illuminated cube will hang in front of every participating merchant as a visual marker for traffic and visitors. Each business is free to creatively energize the day in their own way. Dance performances, craft instruction, stand-up comedy and many other opportunities for celebration enliven the event. The ERBP is a special event that people will want to come back to again and again because it will constantly evolve, change and grow.
