The City of Athens has launched several social networking sites to help communicate information about the Halloween Block Party.

Athens County Public Information Officers are partnering with the city to help compile this information on a blog, Twitter, and Facebook page.

These sites are already active and open to the public.

And a low-power AM radio will play a continuous public service announcement Saturday offering information about the block party, schedules of events, and tips on how to stay safe.  

Public Information Officer Dan Pfeiffer says the community has been actively involved with these sites, and that's why they were created.

"We have a lot of people coming from out of town that don't get those flyers (about the block party)," says Pfeiffer. "But they will go on the Internet and look and see what they can find about the event and this is there for them and for anybody else."
