Block Parties start this Thursday in downtown Erie. The first block party of the summer starts at 6 p.m. at Jerry Uht Park. It's hosted by the Seawolves.

Last year, the block parties raised $44,000 for local charities. The organization that will benefit from this week's block party is the YMCA of greater Erie. YMCA officials say they are honored to be the recipient of this week's donations.
