As tradition goes The Charlotte High School art class is assigned a project that will eventually be the souvenir tshirt of the year and another to be the poster that is put up all over town.
The Block Party was originally started by a group of people that formed a committee 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 unity the community on both sides of the river to celebrate the good life here in Charlotte County.
