Community members were also welcome to participate in the block party. There was be a dunk tank, water games with the Hillsboro Fire Department and an opportunity for businesses to engage with students with to promote their businesses and find student workers.
Community members and Tabor students alike appeared to enjoy the events of the evening. Tabor welcomed back 153 freshmen and 41 transfers and some of their athletes who were already back also attended. The town showed up as well to show off their old cars or even just ride bikes through Main Street. There were lots of treats from popcorn to funnel cake and then everyone settled in to watch the movie when it got dark.
