SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Neighbors in Springfield’s Historic McKnight district weren’t about to allow a pouring rain to spoil Saturday’s annual block party.
A network of tents kept them dry as they celebrated their annual block party at Thompson Triangle Park.
Residents told 22News, they’re proud of their neighborhood with all of its historic homes. McKnight resident Lorenzo Gaines told 22News, “I really believe in the revitalization of Springfield and the neighborhood in particular. I live in the district and it’s important to get the kids out and see Springfield is a great place.”
