Free Kroc Block Party at The Salvation Army Kroc Center

Aug 11, 2022

Back for another summer of fun, The Salvation Army Kroc Center is holding its popular “Kroc Block Party” event next Friday, August 19 from 5:30 to 8:30pm. This event is free to both members and non-members.

Kids and parents alike can cool off on the Kroc Center’s giant slip & slide. Community partners will also offer activities for families, including a bounce house and cotton candy provided by National Heritage Academies, a mobile gaming truck from the Kent County Prevention Coalition, and an appearance by the Grand Rapids Gold mascot, “Buckets.”

Other local organizations scheduled to participate with information and giveaways for families include Launch Trampoline Park, Consumers Energy, Family Futures, Kent County Head Start, YWCA West Central Michigan, Hope Network, and Health Net.

Families are also encouraged to learn more about Kroc Center membership, along with Kroc Church and other programs open to the public. Easy transportation is available via the Rapid’s Silver Line, which stops directly in front of the Kroc Center.

The event will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain or lightning. Visit the Kroc Center’s Facebook page or call 616.588.7200 for more information and updates.
