I expect they will. It's a tradition every year.
It remains to be seen. I'd keep an eye on downtowntempe.com.
As of right now, we think the plan is to close off Mill Ave. and allow visitors to walk around and visit their favorite restaurants. Various bars and restaurants may have parties and/or specials but the block party that has happened in the past (i.e. concert, fireworks, etc.) probably will not be happening this year. For any questions, we suggest contacting the Downtown Tempe Authority because they're the organization that sponsored the block party every year. http://www.downtowntempe.com/
