PITTSBURG, Kan. – The City of Pittsburg’s Downtown Advisory Board (DAB) is inviting the community to celebrate 620 Day with an All-Day City-wide Celebration and a Downtown Block Party. The purpose of the annual event is to cultivate pride and celebrate the Pittsburg community, with the chosen date of 6/20 — or June 20 — coming from Pittsburg’s area code.
As part of the city-wide celebration, all businesses and organizations in the community — not just in downtown — are encouraged to participate in 620 Day all day long with activities, promotions, discounts, and special offers, or by showcasing their organization in a fun or unique way. Any businesses interested in participating can sign up at www.pittks.org/620day to have the DAB list their 620 Day activity on social media and on the city’s website.
To wrap up the city-wide day of celebration, the DAB is hosting a 620 Day Block Party at 2nd Street and Broadway from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., complete with food, music, vendors and much more along the street and inside the Pritchett Pavilion. Food vendors, businesses, and other organizations can register to participate in the block party at www.pittks.org/620day.
Businesses are asked to sign up by Thursday, June 15. For questions, contact City of Pittsburg Community Development Specialist Christi Yockey at 620-240-5190 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
620 Day is hosted as part of the Downtown Advisory Board’s mission to coordinate and significantly increase downtown events and activities, and improve and protect the character, charm, and integrity of the downtown infrastructure.
