Saginaw Block Party Planned for Spirit and Symphony Openers

Riverfront Saginaw and Covenant Healthcare are sponsoring a block party Saturday, October 16 starting at 4:30 p.m., to coincide with the Saginaw Spirit opening game and the Saginaw Symphony Orchestra’s season kickoff.

The event was quickly put together by Spirit staff and features a wide variety of family friendly activities at the Dow, the Temple Theater, Huntington Event Park, Morley Plaza and Old Town Saginaw. Johnson St. will be closed from Washington Ave. to Jefferson. The Spirit home opener begins at 7:05 p.m. and the Saginaw Symphony will perform the best of John Williams, composer of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones scores.
