This year we’ve gotten a bit ambitious with the Downtown Block Party. We’re expanding the amount of activities at the party by almost double from last year. So we’ve still got some room for creative brains to join in the fun!
Do you want to facilitate some sort of fun, creative activity for party-goers to engage? From crafting and schoolyard games to the most bizarre (but family-appropriate) activity your brain can come up with – we want you involved! Even if you’re nervous thinking of something, we can help brainstorm with you!
Take a gander at last year’s activities for some inspiration.
Contact us directly if you’d like to be involved!
If it’s not you, who do you think should be involved?
One of 5 different character shots we'll be putting out everywhere!
This coming Thursday, the 12th, we will be gathering a group together in order to wreak havoc on our fair city. Well, ok, maybe just unleash a little tomfoolery. You see we have these characters we’ve made this year to rep the block party and we’re going to cut out 11 x 17 versions of each of them, break into teams, and put out 200 of the little guys in random places all over Tacoma.
The event will start at 6pm and go until 9pm. The team with the most out-of-the-box character placement and the team with with the most prominent placement will win a nice little prize.

That’s a lot of P’s. So here’s the plan. We want our poster this year to embody the creative and collaborative spirit of the party. Our friends at Slidesideways designed another great poster, but they left the color out so you could paint it!
Thursday night at 7pm we are hosting a watercolor painting party. Everyone that comes will get to paint to their heart’s delight and sign their names to the bottom. All over town people can see your beautiful work!
