BOSTON, MA–(Marketwired – May 10, 2016) – In the spirit of summer and with a passion for live music, networking and the revitalization of Boston’s Downtown neighborhoods, CHEN PR is back as the official Corn Hole Games sponsor for The Boston Calling Block Party Series.

Kicking off this week and running through mid-September, the festivities are held in Dewey Square Park every Thursday from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. The parties are free and open to anyone 21 years of age or older.

CHEN PR joins fellow co-sponsors The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, Shock Top,Wicked Wines, RadioBDC and the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District (BID) to give local artists opportunities to showcase their musical talents to hundreds of fans, complemented by drinks, fun and games.

“The Block Parties have become a summertime tradition for local residents and people visiting the city,” said Crash Line Productions CEO Brian Appel. “CHEN PR’s support helps us attract the thriving tech community and we’re happy to have the agency return as a sponsor for the block parties.”

“Our firm moved into Downtown Crossing three years ago and we’re thrilled to be a part of this rapidly expanding neighborhood filled with innovative companies and incredible people,” said CHEN PR Co-founder and President Chris Carleton. “CHEN PR’s involvement with the Boston Calling Block Parties gives us the best of both worlds — we’re able to support the community and local musicians, while hanging out with fun crowds that embody Boston’s community spirit.”
