East Columbus center hosting Saturday block party

The Robie and America Anderson Community Center will be holding a block party this weekend to celebrate the East Columbus neighborhood.

Julie Bilz, president of the State Street Area Association, talks about the event.

There will be live music by Ragtop Deluxe, the drum circle from Mill Race Center, food, door prizes and informational booths. And there will also be a “splatter paint” project.

This the third annual block party organized by the State Street Area Association, which has taken over operations at the former Eastside Community Center.

The event will run from 3 to 6 Saturday at the center on 421 McClure Road.
