The North Bend Block Party held it’s 10th annual event this past Saturday in downtown North Bend.

The event featured live music, activities and games, and local food. Several local and regional musicians, such as the group LocoMotive, Spike and the Impalers, and Creme Tangerine played live for the crowd during the party.

The Iron Duck Public House were the hosts of the beer and wine gardens where they featured local breweries and wineries such as Convergence Zone Cellars, Sigillo Cellars and William Grassie Wine Estates.

In addition to live music, several groups and businesses had their own presentations such as DMW Martial Arts and Mount Si Wildcat Dance.

On Sunday, The Legends Car Club took center stage along North Bend way for their car show, traditionally held the day after the Block Party.
