View the Event Video from Rock the Block 2015
Rock the Block - a partnership event hosted by the Town of Atoka and Gateway Baptist Church - is our annual summer celebration in the heart of Atoka. Born in 2013 as a grand opening event for the new splash pad complex at Walker Park, the event was so well received (and so much fun) that we just had to make it an annual event. Now a summer tradition in Atoka, Rock the Block 2016 promises to be the best one yet, with
bigger fireworks, more great activities and laser tag in the park !
Rock the Block is coming back to Walker Park on Friday, August 12 beginning at 7 pm. Plan to join us as we widn down the summer with live music, activities for the entire family, free food, extended splash pad hours, games and, after dark, a fantastic fireworks display as we celebrate the end of another great summer - all right in the heart of Atoka at Walker Park.
Rain date - Saturday, August 13.
