Bloomfield Block Party Bliss


The Bloomfield Center Alliance (BCA) made Saturday, May 20th a day to remember for the citizens of the Township of Bloomfield by sponsoring from noon to eight o’clock at night, a free- admission block party on Washington Street. Everything seemed to work out in favor of those who worked so hard to put such a fun event together: the weather was as beautiful as could be, the turnout was enormous, and the good vibes were never-ending.

Besides creating an event that would help to bring the already close-knit community even closer together, another goal of the BCA’s was to present menu items from certain restaurants located in Bloomfield to introduce their culinary delights to the attendees. If Bloomfield’s citizens were not previously convinced of the delectable goodness that their township’s restaurants have to offer, the block party certainly must have changed their minds. Eateries such as Anthony’s Cheesecake, Villa Italiana, and Wasi Food received extraordinary positive attention. Nearly everyone walking the open streets was either savoring every bite of a food item or excitedly shoving the edible in the mouth of someone else, with the confident expectation that their taste buds, too, would experience pure bliss.

The BCA Strives to Make Your Day!

As if the mouthwatering food and beverages were not enough to satisfy, the BCA made sure to provide great music as well. Jeff and the Mutts performed throughout the event, and the responses from the crowd to each one of the band’s songs were always positive. One woman in particular began to hula-hoop to the band’s tunes, providing the crowd a pleasant surprise.  Bloomfield’s own DJ Hiroshi Jaguar also played a part in delivering funky beats, encouraging everyone to move and groove along to the music. Even face painting was offered to Bloomfield’s citizens, as well as a chance to take personal photos inside of a photo booth. The BCA truly went all out, but if you are familiar with the work of the BCA, you know that their “110%” behavior is nothing new.

Events like Bloomfield Center Alliance’s Block Party, comprised of fascinating entertainment, delicious meals and treats, and positive energy, have the power to remind people of the wonderful effects that Bloomfield’s public gatherings can have on its unified citizens. A great place to live! You should contact us if you are thinking of purchasing in this up and coming township.
