There has been rumor of a fall Block Party since the talk of a potential Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties strike began, but Bloom Block Party’s twitter account confirmed it this morning.

Teachers strike, we strike…with booze?
The idea behind the fall Block Party is that students participating in one rather than being in class could help push PASSHE and APSCUF closer to an agreement. Nobody wants college students from 14 colleges and universities, especially the community members and parents/guardians, out partying all day instead of being in classrooms.
No details have been confirmed yet on the fall Block Party but anyone who’s interested in attending knows when it begins and Fetterman Ave. could be the place to be.
