Join us this Saturday for the annual Downtown BlockParty with the Cumulus Collective crew for life sized TETRIS, live art, hair play, caricatures, and more!
Taken from the FB event page:
Come to the fourth annual Downtown Block Party! Everyone’s invited! Whether you’re 5 or 95. Don’t miss this unique event.
Get down to improvised grooves played by some of the best musicians in the Northwest while you paint, eat, dance, play and create. Then strike up a conversation in the beer garden, if you’re of age. (Or the Root Beer garden if you’re underage. Must be accompanied by a minor.)
The feel of the night is all about tasting the fruit of creative collaboration. What’s it like to help paint a mural with friends and make mosaic flower boxes, then get your picture taken in Tacoma’s original costume photo booth and then throw paint balloons at a life-sized Operation game? Come find out August 17th.

We’ll be honoring Downtown as a neighborhood in itself, but we’ll be celebrating the growing movement of Tacomans, and others, caring for each of their home neighborhoods together. Whether you live Downtown or love it, come co-create and feel the groove. Then take that same spirit of creative collaboration back to your neighborhood.
We’ll be updating information as it comes but community mural projects, crafts and a collective of some of the best musicians around are already slated. Many other interesting ideas are in the works. We’re working hard to bring together some of the area’s most creative. If that’s you and you’d like to be involved in some of the planning, please contact us!
