“They will have ax-throwing. There will be inflatable booths. There will be 60-plus vendors between myself and Lansing 501. So it's going to be a great time. You’ve got Smoothie Queen and Mr. Leslie’s Cheesecakes," Iman said.

Iman says the BLOCK:AID and Afterglow Market will also have four different stages featuring music acts.


The event is expected to draw hundreds to the heart of downtown.

The kick-off event runs from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. on June 10 in the 100 through 300 blocks of Washington Square and in Artery Alley.
