“These are especially about getting downtown workers who pack up and leave for home to stay and see what downtown Wilmington is all about,” said Brianna Hansen, the block parties’ campaign manager.

Hansen said In Wilmington has worked with many local businesses to showcase as much of the city as possible.

Rocky Bluewinkle, the Blue Rocks’ mascot, will be around to say hello and snap a selfie from 5 to 5:30 p.m. On the main stage, the saxophone students from the Arts Academy at the Grand will open for headlining acts RKVC, a pop-rock duo, and the country-tinged classic-rock group Old Baltimore Speedway.

The block party, which has free admission, goes from 5 to 8 p.m.

The series kicked off in May at LOMA, and Hansen said she’s particularly excited about the September block party higher up on Market Street, where two blocks will be cordoned off for two (possibly three) stages and a pop-up wine/arts garden.

Here’s the lineup of the next Tuned IN Wilmington Block Party Series:

United on Union – Thursday, July 23rd
Wet & Wild on Washington – Thursday, August 27th
Masterpiece on Market – Thursday, September 24th
Rodney Square Reverie – Thursday, October 22nd
