In the Heights Block Party was a concert event that started on June 4, 2021, promoting the theatrical adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name. There were three obtainable emotes in the event, which were unlockable by pressing 1, 2, and 3 on the emote slots, in which they unpack into the emotes. This event was mainly focusing on 13+ audiences, due to the movie being rated PG-13.
