MIT Endicott House is winding up its 50th anniversary celebration on Saturday, May 13, with a "Block Party" open to all members of the MIT community.
The Block Party, scheduled to run from noon to 5 p.m., will feature the music of Liberty Street Band and fun for children, including balloon sculptures, juggling and a parade headed by Tim the Beaver.
Other activities will include a cooking challenge with Isaac Colbert, dean for graduate students, and MIT Police Sgt. Cheryl Vossmer; and house and garden tours.
Food will be available and is free for students.
MIT Endicott House is located in Dedham. Free transportation is being provided to and from campus with shuttle buses running on the half hour. Pickup will be in the circle in front of the former campus police station on Mass. Ave. Free parking will also be available.
"We expect it to be tremendous fun for everyone," said Mike Fitzgerald, Endicott House general manager.
