NORFOLK – As the summer break comes to a close, one non-profit closed off the streets and threw a block party.
Over the weekend, The Zone held their annual Rock the Block fundraiser.
The Zone is a non-profit after-school program for Norfolk youth.
This event serves as kind of a wrap up for the summer and is their largest fundraiser.
They closed off Braasch Avenue at 3rd Street and entertained the community with games, face painting, food live music and more.
Saturday was the third time The Zone has held the block party.
The proceeds from the event will aid with operational expenses for the non-profit.
