Asbury Park hosts back-to-school block party

Posted: Updated:

Asbury Park saluted the end of summer with a back-to-school block party.

Bounce houses and face painting kept the kids entertained at Springwood Avenue Park, while parents toured information booths and spoke to city leaders.           

It was also a chance to meet a new neighbor.

"It brings it brings the community together. It's an opportunity for people to meet their city administrators. We all have fun, the parents are here the children are here they're getting excited about going back to school - and it's fun. It's really, really fun," says Asbury Park Councilwoman Yvonne Clayton.

The annual block party has been going on for more than a decade.
