One of the most frequent complaints heard locally is “there is nothing to do in LaFollette”. The folks at Common Ground Coffee Shop have decided to be proactive in battling that complaint.

On June 26th from 5-8pm they will be hosting The Downtown Block Party in Freeman Park. There will be music, games, and family friendly fun. There will also be a pair of food trucks set up for folks to dine at. The Little Taco Food Truck will be serving tacos, nachos and a variety of Tex-Mex faire. The SOF-T-EE-SERVE Ice Cream truck will be serving frozen desserts. In addition to that Common Ground will be open serving their regular coffee and other favorites. In addition to Freeman Park adjacent to Common Ground the City of LaFollette is shutting down first street and the good folks at Pyro Shows will be adding their parking lot to making sure there is plenty of room.

This will hopefully become a regular event for all to enjoy. In addition to Friday June 26th a July date is already being planned.
