This year’s theme is “Discover Your Superpowers!”

The Block Party will kick off just below the Stewart Bell Tower Plaza with the annual Purple Pancake Breakfast, served by Weber State President Charles A. Wight and other members of the Weber State administrative staff.

Activity booths will open around 8:30 a.m. with more than 100 vendors tending booths up and down the WSU campus. These vendors will be split up into categories such as academics, campus and community, commercial groups and various WSU groups, clubs and organizations.

While not promised, most booths will be handing out prizes, opportunities for involvement and will have activities in which to participate.

Any student with a valid Wildcat ID card can pick up a “food passport” from the information booth located inside the Shepherd Union and visit participating booths to receive passport stamps for an opportunity to win a prize.

According to Tara Peris-Caputo, Student Involvement and Leadership director, the annual Block Party is considered one of Weber State’s most important traditions.

“It allows the campus community to celebrate the many services, majors, departments, activities and organizations the university has to offer,” Peris-Caputo said.

The 13th Annual Block Party is free and open to the public.
