LET'S MAKE IT ANOTHER GREAT PARTY
We, the Punta Gorda Days Inc, the non profit group that stages the Punta Gorda Block Party, would like to thank the community, the vendors, the sponsors, the volunteers and the non profits for their support over the years.
The Block Party was originally started and the organizing committee formed at the request of the City of Punta Gorda to celebrate the centennial and to promote downtown businesses. It succeeded beyond all expectations, bringing in many first time visitors downtown as well as uniting the community on both sides of the river to celebrate the good life here in Charlotte County.
During it's time, the Block Party quickly became one of the most unique Punta Gorda events not duplicated anywhere else and the biggest and best One Day Event in all of Southwest Florida. It became a principal source for non profits, service organizations, schools, youth and school sports teams as well. Crowds come from all over to this event and enjoy the entertainment.
There have been over 74 non profits who participated over the years. Many of these groups have their biggest fund raiser of the year at the Block Party.
