Overwatch League team LA Valiant has revealed that they're inviting fans to the first ever Be Valiant: Community Block Party on October 20 (this Saturday) in front of the Esports Arena in Santa Ana, starting at 14:00 PT.

This will include carnival games, food trucks, live music, a meet and greet with members of the team, and a whole lot more. This is part of their series of Be Valiant events to create physical touchpoints for "underserved communities in esports", as the Valiant said in their press release, with this as the fourth and final event for this year.

"Through Be Valiant we focus on reaching underserved fans as part of our persistent drive to
become the most inclusive and diverse community in esports," said Noah Whinston, CEO of the
LA Valiant. "The Community Block Party is the best way to close out Be Valiant for 2018 by
celebrating current fans and welcoming new fans who want to be a part of an united esports
community."

An activation called Junkertown IRL Presented by Nitto Tires is also coming exclusively to the event, as fans are transported to the Australian Outback. Wells Fargo are also bringing a Stage Coach for fans to see, as well as hosting merchandise giveaways and more. GlitchxCity and James Landino will be providing music too, and proceeds of the entire event will be donated to St. Jude Research Children's Hospital.
