7th annual Phinney Ditch Block Party to be held July 12

The Seventh annual Phinney Ditch Block Party is coming up on July 12 and will be held at 6226 6th Ave. N.W. Don't miss your chance to "To rock your socks-in-sandals off, Seattle" with pie jousting, dodge ball, noodle wars, face painting, spam carving, bouncing, cooking and just plain rocking out.

This year the party has additions, including a second baby bounce house, a mini-kiddo sprinkler park, painting, a kamikaze cart, and art bikes.

Inspired by the Stumbletown Artists Trunk Show, the Phinney Ditch Block Party will host a trunk show featuring any local artists, business owners, and practitioners who would like to set up and talk about what they love and do. If interesting in showing off your skills or business, email phinneyditch@gmail.com

It’s in the spirit of buying local, and while we’ve always had cool local music, we’ve never had cool local visual arts and wares. Included in the showcase is The Summer 2014 Ballard Pop-Up Food Garden Project.
