Westminster College and William Woods University Team Up for Fulton’s Brick Blast 


Fulton, MO ‒ Sept. 7, 2022: Westminster College and William Woods University are teaming up with Fulton’s Brick District and the Super Sam Foundation to bring back the popular Brick Blast, which halted not long after COVID-19 began.

The event will take place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 22, 2022, on Court Street in the Brick District.

Exclusively for students, faculty, and staff of Westminster and William Woods, the annual Brick Blast turns Court Street between Sixth and Seventh streets into a pedestrian-only area, showcasing downtown and other area businesses.

The event includes freebies, food from downtown restaurants, raffles, and the opportunity to shop. Participation is free, but registration — which has been extended to Monday, Sept. 19 — is encouraged. Register online through Member Solutions.

Event coordinator Kristina Bright, executive director of marketing and strategic communications at Westminster College, explains that this year’s Brick Blast should be larger than ever, because it is the first year the event has officially opened up to faculty and staff members of the local colleges.

“The Brick Blast committee is really excited to bring this event back,” Bright adds. “It really benefits our downtown businesses and allows our college communities to become familiar with the many products and services available to all of us right here in Fulton.”
