Fort Pierce, FL: The Toy Drive Block Party #TDBP2018, in downtown Fort Pierce on December 8 will featuring “Samples with Santa” to the first 100 attendees, has a talent line up not to be missed. Young performers from B’Nerdz with Club Pure, Boys & Girls Clubs at WestGate K-8 and Chuck Hill, C.A.S.T. Academy, PACE Center for Girls, Heather HERO Wells, and others will be featured throughout the day during the block party. “It was always my intention to make the kid’s shine,” said Jose Ruiz, event Founder and owner of LeGit Cuts Barbershop on Second Street in Fort Pierce. “We started small with only 2 groups, and now we have kids from around the county who want to participate and be involved. I love spotlighting these kids. They’re the best.” Ruiz further added.
After a presentation of colors at 12:00 p.m., DJ 1 1 will kick off the music while attendees sample tacos and pizza from Casa Azteca and Crafted Pie. Afterwards, cupcakes from Food Network featured local baker, Staci Dunn the Cake Lady. In addition, Sailfish Brewery will be giving away samples to guests 21 and older. Talent starts hitting the stage at 1:00 and will last until 5:00 p.m.
Let the kids enjoy the bounce house, face painter, arts and crafts, or pics with Santa while you stroll through the vendor tables, visit local downtown businesses, and maybe even shop for your Christmas tree from HodgePodge Trees. All of this for the price of an unwrapped toy for a local child in need. Finally, raffles will be taking place every hour with generous items donated from around the county.
