ST. CLOUD - The Liberty Block Party took center stage at St. Cloud's Granite City Days.

Robin Gohman is one of the organizers of the event. She says they have great entertainment lined up for the event.

"Our opening act is Tonic Sol-Fa followed shortly by Tommy James and The Shondells."

The 29th annual event happened at Whitney Park on Friday evening. Musical hits like Crimson and Clover as well as Hanky Panky could be heard from blocks away as Tommy James & The Shondells headlined the block party.

Even though the event is on its's 29th year, Gohnman says they continue to gain popularity.

"Our crowd seems to get bigger and bigger every year. It is hard to know but estimates are somewhere in excess of 10,000 people."

The event was free to attend, but proceeds made from t-shirt and food sales went to district 742's LEAF program.
