Dennis Quaid reschedules Bellaire block party to Nov. 11

Bellaire is going to have to wait a bit longer for the return of actor-musician Dennis Quaid to host a fundraiser for the “brave” who serve his hometown.

The Bellaire Block Party featuring Quaid and his group, the Sharks, has been rescheduled from this coming Saturday, Oct. 21, to Nov. 11 “due to unforeseen circumstances,” according to an announcement by organizers on Monday. “Mr. Quaid was regretful at this change in plans but looks forward to coming home to Bellaire in just a few short weeks,” the statement read.

The free public event will take place from 1-5 p.m. on the Great Lawn at Bellaire Town Square, with underwriting and sponsorships benefiting the Bellaire Brave Fund to assist city employees who were affected by Hurricane Harvey while they served Bellaire residents’ needs for days during the emergency.

Because the new date coincides with Veteran’s Day, the block party will also celebrate those in the community who have served in the military.
