Closure of the 2900 block of 30th Avenue in downtown Vernon began this morning.

City of Vernon crews are placing barriers, concrete planters and picnic tables on the street as it transforms into 2900 Plaza for the summer.

The one-block section will be closed to vehicles until after the Labour Day long weekend, and the Downtown Vernon Association has a long list of events and entertainment set up to entice the public.

Setup will continue for the next couple of days, and noon-hour entertainment will begin on Thursday.

There will also be evening entertainment on Thursdays, as the Downtown Sounds series of concerts keeps the party going. Performers begin at 6 p.m.

Watch for activities, games and more throughout July and August.

DJ Lunchboxx will be spinning tunes on Friday nights, starting at 5 p.m.

This coming Saturday, most of 30th Avenue will be closed for the Sun Valley Cruise-In downtown car show, from 4 to 8 p.m. There will be live music on the Plaza, with the Silverbacks starting at 5 p.m.
