KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWS CHANNEL 3 WWMT) – The Kalamazoo Aviators are teaming up with the Eastside Neighborhood Association and Kalamazoo Public Safety for a family friendly winter block party called “Arctic Blast.”

Organizers say it’s all about bringing the community together and providing positive role models.

“It’s paramount. We really need to show our youth role models that are engaged, upstanding and loving. That they care about these youth and our neighbors on the eastside and this is a really good chance to show that,” said Aviators Executive Director Kris Mbah.

Arctic Blast is Thursday afternoon from 3:00 to 6:00 at Rockwell Park in the 1000 block of Trimble Avenue.

The community is invited for games, a scavenger hunt and networking with local public safety officers.
