Come out and rock Virginia Beach’s newest park on the block with your family and friends! Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation is hosting the Rock Around the Block Party at Williams Farm Park (5269 Learning Circle) on Friday, May 17, 2013 from 6 - 9 pm. Fun family activities, tasty festival foods, and live entertainment are on the agenda for the day!


Free and open to the public, Rock Around the Block Party is the first event in the Party in the Park summer series. Dance to the beats of the live DJ, courtesy of Crazy Diamond Entertainment while enjoying traditional carnival games and inflatables for the kids. Performances by Betty F. Williams’ Elementary School’s Drum Team and Step Team will be sure to excite the crowd, as will an amazing dance tribute to “The King of Pop” Michael Jackson by 10-year-old local sensation known as “MJ.”


Be sure to check out a Piloxing® demonstration by Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation’s Fitness & Wellness Team, as well as a variety of food vendors and exhibitors onsite for the event.
