The Tennessee Democratic Party sponsors who will be on hand include: Dixie Taylor-Huff, Tommy Huff, Karen Huff, Metro Councilman at Large Leo Waters, Metro Trustee Charlie Caldwell, Clayton McWhorter and Metro Property Assessor JoAnn North.

The block party will feature food and live performances by John England, Wendy and Franko Hahiguchi and others. The admittance fee is $25 for adults and $5 for children ages 4-12.
