Rock the Block: Business After Hours

Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

On what had to be the prettiest day of the year, Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce presented Rock the Block Business After Hours. This event is always downtown Murfreesboro. The street was shut off and the music by The O’Donells was turned up during this special edition of Business After Hours as First Vision Bank, The Alley on Main, Network Technology Partners, The Daily News Journal and MTSU hosted Rock The Block.

This Business After Hours is always a crowd favorite with an assortment of drinks and wonderful food provided by The Alley.

To top it all off, the first 100 people to arrive, received a free ticket to the MTSU vs. Vanderbilt baseball game, immediately following.
