The 9th Street Block Party scheduled for tomorrow has been cancelled due to rain

The heavy rain expected tomorrow has prompted organizers to cancel tomorrow's 9th Street A-1 Block Association Block Party between Avenue A and First Avenue.

And this will not be rescheduled. As we understand, the city will no longer allow rain dates for events like this.

A shame, as — along with the 10th Street Block Festival — this is one of the best block events around... and organizers have been hard at work planning this year's edition.

The city doesn't know how to deal with its own red tape more than once for an event so rain dates aren't allowed... Ridiculous

Thanks for the post, Grieve - and the hat tips from WK and Steven! We're very disappointed, but here's to next year. Stay safe and healthy in the meantime, everyone!
