A three-day block party is planned for the parking lot next to Gluek’s as part of the MLB All Star Game festivities.

The Chevy Experience Pepsi All Star Block Party will shut down a block of 6th Street between Hennepin Avenue and 1st Avenue for a total of five days, ranging from 9 a.m. Friday, July 11 to 6 a.m. Wednesday, July 16. The actual party will run from noon to 7 p.m. Sunday, July 13 through Tuesday, July 15.

A map of the party submitted to the city shows a number of corporately-sponsored tents, food trucks, a stage for a DJ and a 4,800-square-foot pop-up Target store.

Capacity for the event was listed at approximately 3,800 people.
