West End Block Party

blockparty.gifSure it may be a little early to post about something in August when July is still here n’ kickin but I figure the more event info and fun stuff we have up on here, the better eh? Especially when it’s all FREE.

Gordon Neighbourhood House is holding their 8th annual West End Summer Block Party on Saturday August 12th, 2006 from 11 am – 2 pm on the 1000 block of Broughton Street….

One of our annual highlights include the Annual Summer Block Party which attracts over 500 residents of the West End and is a fun festival for people of all ages. The streets are closed off for children’s games, entertainers, food and information booths with representatives from many West End agencies.[gordon house]

Now you might think – GREAT another street party! Or GREAT hmmf, another street party. They sure are popping up all over Vancouver – as the Tyee asked earlier this month, is this too much of a good thing? [tyee]

Regardless, if you’re in the West End, living, visiting, or haven’t even really thought about it at all as a destination, stop on by this event and judge for yourself.

On a somewhat related note, the West End is home to one (of many) local community markets on the weekend. For more details, check out your local Farmers Community Market page [market]
