Last year I attended the West End Block Party with Keira (and her hot dog t-shirt). We had a really great time playing some games, touring the transit museum on wheels, and hanging out in our ‘hood on a sunny afternoon.

“Gordon Neighbourhood House is holding its 10th annual West End Summer Block Party on Saturday August 9th, 2008 from 11 am – 2 pm on the 1000 block of Broughton Street. This is a free event with live street entertainment featuring Eve Smith, Tropical Heat, a clown, and much more!!! There will also be a huge children’s carnival with games and prizes, face painting and tattoo booths, 25 cent hot dogs, seniors’ tea and tarts, and a youth corner.” [Gordon House] [Upcoming]

The event kicks off at 11:00am and if you can’t make it to the West End, there’s always Yaletown… although I cannot speak to its level of fun-ness and potential for hot dog t-shirts.

The Victory Square Block Party will be coming up on September 1st

  3. Ryoh A says:

    I didn’t know that you went to the block party! I’m the guy who has been making the hotdogs there for the last 6 or 7 years. I was also in the dunk tank near the end.

    If you go next year, say hi!
