The Iowa City Downtown District hosted a massive block party Saturday night that took over the pedestrian mall and several streets. Huge crowds turned out to see live music, play games and sand volleyball, dance at a silent disco and catch fashion from local designers and boutiques at the Fashion 500.

This was also the first event to allow patrons to get alcoholic beverages to-go from bars and restaurants. With the purchase of a $10 cup, those 21+ were able to enjoy beer and cocktail specials within the designated block party area.[/vc_column_text][hcode_image_gallery image_gallery_type=”lightbox-gallery” simple_image_type=”feet” lightbox_type=”masonry” column=”4″ image_gallery=”119491,119462,119463,119464,119465,119466,119467,119468,119469,119470,119471,119472,119473,119474,119475,119476,119477,119478,119479,119480,119481,119482,119483,119484,119485,119486,119488,119489,119490″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
