A major Christian rock event is coming to White Marsh Mall this Saturday—free of charge and open to the community.
Located in the Boscov’s parking lot at 8200 Perry Hall Blvd., Rock the Block runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on May 12. Officers at the White Marsh precinct said they plan to assist in directing traffic during the show and festival, expected to draw between 3,000 and 4,000 people.
A mall press release describes the event:
Rock the Block is not a conventional event but a high-energy experience incorporating music and multimedia that encourages everyone to be involved. There are rappers that entertain and lasers and lights swirl overhead while drama, dance, and videos spread messages of love, hope and character.
Rock the Block supports and believes in abstinence before marriage and saying no to drugs and alcohol. They challenge men and women to become people of character and encourage them to be someone great.
The event features several area vendors and bands. More details are available on the organizer's website.
