Cirque-themed Queen Creek block party set for March 5

Step right up from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 5, because the town of Queen Creek will transform Town Center into a circus-themed block party featuring contortionists, fire breathers, live music and other similar festivities.

It’s all part of the town’s second annual block party, a free-to-attend community event for the whole family with food trucks, street vendors, live music and more.

Last year’s inaugural party event attracted hundreds of children and adults to the Town Center – on Ellsworth Road from Ocotillo Road to Victoria Lane – and this year’s event will likely draw an even larger crowd thanks to the lengthy lineup of cirque-themed fanfares, performers and numerous shopping and dining opportunities.
