Produced by Columbus Area Arts Council and sponsored by Johnson-Witkemper Insurance, Biggest Block Party Ever is an annual fundraiser for the Arts Council. Held on the last Saturday of July, the block party includes three music stages and 12 bands performing throughout the evening. The entertainment line-up includes local and regional acts playing a range of musical styles from rock and country to blues and soul.
Headlining this year’s event is Hunter Smith Band. When Super Bowl Champion punter Hunter Smith decided to retire from football after 12 years in the NFL he did so with a plan in mind. The first step was to strategically put together an eclectic group of musicians then couple them with an eclectic catalogue of self written biographical songs. Next came the challenge of melding a singer-songwriter approach with a very serious and unique country rock sound. He pulled it off. It is called the Hunter Smith Band.
This year’s lineup:
Dunlap Stage (The Commons)
5:30–6:30 PM monetary winner of Battle of the Bands
6:15–7:15 PM Bigalow P (Motown, R&B)
7:30–8:30 PM Hudson Hornet (Rockabilly)
8:45–10:00 PM Justin Slager Band (original and Classic Rock covers)

As night falls on Columbus, countless glowing faces spring to life. Individuals and organizations from across Columbus carve jack-o’-lanterns and submit them to compete in a contest to determine who are the most creative carvers in town. The shining faces then set the ambiance for an evening festival which includes games, entertainment, the “Monster Mutt Parade” pet costume contest, and more. Admission is free and the fee to enter carving contest is $5. All proceeds benefit Advocates for Children work to lift up the lives of children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect.
