Shamrock the Block 2014 prepares to make Boulevard debut

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

After a brawl with police made headlines last year, preparations are well underway as Shamrock the Block is expected to make its debut at the Boulevard Saturday.

Organizers have said that attendees can expect more kids activities, bands, and things to do this year.

They also say they will have more space and better parking than at the 17th Street Farmer's Market where it had been held.

Last year's event was marred by controversy after a YouTube video showed a brawl involving a Colonial Heights man and Richmond Police.
 
After the March incident, Richmond Police said they were conducting an internal investigation, which would include witness and officer interviews.
