I advertised this event last year although we didn’t end up going… someone also criticized it for being “only 3 hours long” but if it’s 3 hours of fun times in the neighbourhood, I’m game.
Gordon Neighbourhood House is holding its 9th annual West End Summer Block Party and 65th Birthday Celebration on Saturday August 11th, 2007, from 11 am until 2 pm on the 1000 block of Broughton Street. This is a free event with live street entertainment featuring Eve Smith, Taiko Drummers, a clown, and much more!!! There will also be a huge children’s carnival with games and prizes, face painting and tatoo booths, 25 cent hot dogs, senior’s tea and tarts, and a youth center! [Upcoming]
I was totally in until the word “clown” but perhaps I can try to avoid it. 25 cent hot dogs? Yeah, I’ll try my best to swing by this year to check it out – here’s a google map for anyone else that’s interested.
While you’re in the West End on a Saturday, also check out the Farmers Market, which runs from June 16 to October 6, every Saturday from 9:00am to 2:00pm. Visit the West End Business Improvement Association‘s site for more details and happenings around the ‘hood. Also be sure to stop by when Midnight Kitchen is there and pick up some of their to-die-for cookies.
