WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WKBW) - The Village of Williamsville will be holding a block party from 6-9 pm Saturday.

Main Street from Mill Road to Cayuga Street will be closed at that time.

There will be food, drinks, bands, and fun for the whole family. It's all in an effort to highlight the Village's picture main street project.

Officials are looking to make State Route 5, or Main Street, in more pedestrian-friendly by adding more sidewalk space, enhanced lighting and new crossing signals.

Locals we spoke to say the traffic in the area is extremely noise and unsafe for those walking around in the area.

Officials are currently in the process of applying for grants to make the pedestrian-friendly project a reality.
