Pleasant Ridge has block party

        Vintage cars, foot races and even a parade make Ridge Day a little different than the average community festival.

        Those activities, and more, will be found at Ridge Day 2000 today — a celebration of life in the Pleasant Ridge neighborhood. It will be held at Pleasant Ridge Community Center, 5915 Ridge Road.

        This marks the second consecutive year of the daylong festival, which began in the 1970s and has returned periodically through the '80s and '90s.

        “It's something a little different than a church festival,” said Doug Newberry, festival chairman.

        Among its offerings: food from local restaurants, live music, games, a parade, two 1.5-mile runs and a vintage car show.

        There is no admission charge.

        The two sprints begin at 11:15 a.m.; parade at 11:30 a.m. Other events are from noon to 8 p.m.
