WBNA Block Party 2012 — June 30, Harrison Street

miss wensdayCome out for the West Broadway Neighborhood Association’s third annual neighborhood Block Party!

The beautiful and talented Miss Wensday will emcee the event this year. Mingle with old friends and neighbors, make new friends and meet new neighbors, or come on over to visit the neighborhood and see why so many people think the WestSide is the Best Side! Think of it as a sort of “Open House,” but for a whole neighborhood. This Block Party is like a colorful gypsy caravan, moving around the WestSide, getting kicked out one place and moving on to the next . . . and this year it is setting up camp on beautiful Harrison Street!

Wanna dance? Enjoy live music from two stages (rock & roll, hip hop, acoustic) from these great local artists: Northern Lands, The Silks, Mark Cutler, Milo & Otis, The Mighty Good Boys,  Jon Hope & DJ Knockout, Carolyn Hecht (of tig & bean), Mark McCall, Daniel Rouvrais, Extraordinary Rendition Band, and the fantastic Community MusicWorks Student String Quartet!
