The University at Buffalo will host a block party and safety fair from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday on the Hayes Hall lawn of the South Campus.

The event allows UB students who live off the campus and neighborhood residents to get to know each other before the academic year begins, and will feature live music, free food and information from campus, police and community agencies. A simulated room fire will be demonstrated at 5 p.m. to raise awareness of fire safety.

UB’s marching band and students will participate in a “Running of the Bulls” parade that begins at 1:30 p.m. at Winridge Road and Winspear Avenue and ends on the lawn at Hayes Hall.
