It was a great time!! We thank the community for supporting Sei Bella Salon. We raised $411 Fromm cotton candy sales for St. Baldricks Foundation!! ❤ ( we are donating to the Umass police for their St. Baldricks event)!!!

I particularly liked the Meet the Candidates table. It made it both easier & more difficult to make those important choices in November. We’re lucky to have so many great people ready to serve our new town government!

Thank you for another fun Amherst Block Party! Great evening. Fine weather. Good food. Lots of happy faces.

It was a fantastic event! My kids had a great time and came home with a ton of stuff. Thank you Sarah Donald la Cour and Amherst BID for putting on such a wonderful community event!

Great event!
