Mulkey Block Party to be May 27
Posted By: Roger Estlack - 5/21/2017 12:00:00 AM
The fifth annual Mulkey Block Party will be rocking downtown Clarendon this Saturday, May 27, from 6 to 10 p.m., and a special presentation is planned for inside the theatre.
The 100 block of Kearney Street will be closed starting Saturday morning as work begins to set up the stage and other amenities for the party.
The evening will be a night of dancing, kids’ games, and food and vendor booths in a fun-filled atmosphere to help support continued renovations of the 1946 Mulkey Theater.
The party begins at 6 p.m. as local singer/song-writer Rev. Black Flowers takes the stage to provide the opening live music before Amarillo’s most highly rated band, “Insufficient Funds,” comes on at 7 p.m.
During the band’s intermission that evening, the crowd will be asked to convene inside the Mulkey where Dusty and Nikki Green will premiere a new documentary.
The Greens, Howardwick residents who star in the national PBS series “Two for the Road,” interviewed local residents for the basis of “Cinema City,” which tells the story of Clarendon’s Mulkey Theatre.
There is no charge to enter the block party. Kids movies will be showing in the theatre throughout the evening, and popcorn and other concessions will be available in the Mulkey. People are encouraged to bring their own lawn or camp chairs for use either inside watching movies or outside to enjoy the live music.
The Whistle-Stop Trade Days along with the Chamber of Commerce and the Bronco Cheerleaders will provide a large bounce house for kids to enjoy.
Food booths run the gamut of everything from baked goods to sliders, and local vendors will also have items for sale.
The Herring Bank car and motorcycle show will be held again on the bank’s parking lot, and all year models are welcome.
