YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Lincoln Avenue by Youngstown State University, will be closed Friday for the "Live on Lincoln" block party.
The party, sponsored by a number of business on the avenue, will feature food, drinks and a cover band from New York, according to a release.
The party kicks off between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Tickets are free for the block party but a valid ID will be required for any drink purchases.
"It's an old idea with a new concept. YSU has never seen it but I've heard of like Kent State and Akron doing block party style type things like that so we're just trying to bring it down to YSU. It's kind of a way to unwind before finals come up," says organizer Kevin Stiffler.
