There are 18 outstanding bands performing on three different stages. Over the last 17 years, the Block Party has become one of the top summertime events in the Twin Cities celebrating music, good weather and community.
Thursday morning, we got a rockin' preview from one of this year's featured acts, Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles.
