White Center Block Party will rock the neighborhood June 14

A block party on June 14 in White Center will kick off summer beginning at 3 p.m. and running until dusk with a lot of fun for the whole family.

The party will feature pop up shopping with Maker’s Market at Center Studio, a beer garden at Big Al Brewing, Metal Skate Night at Southgate Skating Rink plus live bands at several places around the neighborhood including Triangle Pub, Company Bar, Rat City Records, and Full Tilt Ice Cream.

You'll also have a chance to sample of the diverse food available in the area 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, said, “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.
