The sun was out, and so were the crowds at North Bend’s weekend festivities, which included the Downtown Block Party Saturday (this page) and the Legends car show Sunday (page 3).
Two stages of live entertainment, and a main street filled with booths, games and other children’s activities made the annual community celebration on Saturday another success this year.
Chaplins did a brisk business with families visiting the tie-dye T-shirt tents and the Mount Si Artist Guild quickly ran out of space to hang the hand-painted puzzle pieces from children who stopped in. Boys lined up to play human foosball and Si View Parks’ Gaga Ball pit was busy, too.
Over at the petting zoo, a capybara was a very popular, if unpronounceable critter to visit with and there were plenty of bunnies for everyone to cuddle.
Legends Car Club closed down North Bend Way from Bendigo Boulevard to Ballarat Avenue to display the cars brought by members of the club from around the Northwest. Classic cars, restored and maintained, lined the streets and owners spoke with visitors and answered questions.
Many of the cars on display were also being judged by a panel of Legends Car Club for 14 different categories of awards, including “City’s Choice” which was decided on by city staff.
