On Saturday, August 18 from 3:00 p.m. – 10 p.m. at Opera Alley (Court C & S. 7th St.), Downtown Neighbors will be hosting the Downtown Block Party and Downtown On the Go will be a part of the event. The block party is one part art shindig and one part neighborhood block party. Participants can paint, craft, dance, eat and drink. Whatever the case, it will be hard for them to leave at the end of the night without a sense of inspiration to think outside-the-box about their own neighborhood.
This year Downtown On the Go will be a part of the event by promoting our Live Downtown program and by transforming a parking area into a park, similar to what is seen on Park(ing) Day, a program run locally by DOTG in September. At the booth participants will be able to sit in lawn chairs, play yard games, and create a chalk masterpiece. This fun, family event will have over 50 activities for all ages. Help celebrate downtown Tacoma and join DOTG at the event.
