Block Party coming to downtown White Center on Saturday, June 14
Downtown White Center will be kicking off summer with a Block Party on Saturday, June 14, from 3 p.m. until dusk with many activities for attendees of all ages.
The June event boasts pop-up shopping with Maker’s Market at Center Studio, a beer garden at Big Al Brewing, Metal Skate Night at Southgate Skating Rink, along with live bands at several other local favorite establishments (Triangle Pub, Company Bar, Rat City Records, and Full Tilt to name a few), and the most delicious way to enjoy White Center with a $2 food walk.
Local non-profits White Center Community Development Association (WCCDA) and White Center Chamber of Commerce (WCCC) along with local business owners hope to build upon last year’s block party in August 2013 which was organized as part of National Night Out. The neighborhood was busier than many had ever seen with hundreds of attendees on a warm summer evening coming to White Center for the first time, or with residents who wanted to come, support their neighbors’ business or be part of something fun in their neighborhood.
Lead organizer this year is WCCC Board member and business owner of Herban Legends, Chris Cody, who says:
“I just think folks should come out and see what all the great businesses here in White Center have to offer.”
Cody, along with the rest of the WCCC, the WCCDA, and local business owners hope to organize another – bigger and better — block party in White Center later this summer in August.
