We officially announced our 2008 Crystal Block Celebration this week. Not only will we be celebrating the wonderful flavor and entertainment of the 23rd Street Restaurants, but also the landing of all of the Crystal Flight airplanes on the streets of Crystal City.
Sunday April 13th, 2008
1PM to 6PM
Along 23rd Street's Restaurant Row
(between S. Fern Street & S. Eads Street)
The Crystal Flight highlights of the day include a first hand look at two of 23rd's Streets planes, Flotsam & Jetsam (Freddie's Beach Bar & Restaurant) and Bounce Off (Crystal City Sports Pub). Graffiti artist Kevin Irvin will also be working on his plane for Arlington Sports throughout the day! Block party patrons will also have an opportunity to "leave their own mark" on one of the planes courtesy of one of the BID's planes "Chalk It Up." Finally, the BID will be unveiling the official "Flight Plan Map" which will take area visitors on a 4.5 mile walking tour to all 50 planes throughout Crystal City.
The Block party will also feature live music on the street from the groups listed below and various other entertainment from area restaurants.
