Downtown block party Friday to celebrate Kentucky's win

April 5, 2012 

If you're still feeling the fever of Kentucky winning the national men's college basketball title, the Big Blue Block Party will keep your team spirit alive.

Starting at 6 p.m. Friday, Cheapside Park's Fifth Third Bank Pavilion in downtown Lexington will be hopping.

The first-ever Big Blue Block Party is free. It's set to feature food and drinks from Goodfellas pizza, Bellini's, Kentucky Ale beer and Four Roses bourbon; music by Bluejay, Daniel Griffin, Dale Stumbo and DJ Daddy; and booths from local businesses.

There will be block party T-shirts for sale to benefit Sunrise Children's Services in Louisville and Beloved, an anti-sex-trafficking-group in Lexington.

The party is scheduled to end at 11 p.m., but music will probably continue a little later, organizers said.

Cheapside Park is at Main Street and Cheapside.
