Everyone is invited to the Back Cove Block Party this year, not just the neighborhood residents.

The block party will be Sunday, Aug. 8, from noon to 3 p.m. on Baxter Boulevard in Portland. The road will be closed from Vannah Avenue to Payson Park.

An ice cream truck and fire engine will be there. Potluck desserts and drinks will be available.

The block party is put on by the Back Cove Neighborhood Association with help from the city of Portland. This is the event’s third year.
