A "family fun" block party held by the Tidings of Peace Christian School later this month will close a portion of East Poplar Street in York City.

The block party will take place from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, March 28, at the school, located at 329 E. Poplar St. The festivities will close East Poplar between South Pine and Edgar streets, according to a city news release.

The city expects a large turnout at the event and has urged drivers to take extra precautions.
