Over 100 people attend the block party

By Cynthia Sheridan

The NE 177th Street block party celebrated its 26th year of community building Saturday, September 8, 2018 with an outdoor bar-b-q and potluck.

Doesn't everyone have a bouncy house in their front yard?

Shoreline city officials blocked traffic from Serpentine to 25th NE, making room for pony rides, a bouncy house and a ping-pong table as well as tables and chairs for over a hundred party-goers.

A new feature this year was “The Good Ideas”, a five piece cover band whose members are 6th and 7th graders living in the Shoreline area.

The "Good Ideas" performed

Other activities included face and hair painting, chalk drawing, the traditional water balloon toss and a raffle.

Party founders Nancy Phillips and Dave Geddes planned and supervised the event, including set-up and take-down, along with many enthusiastic neighbor volunteers.

At the end of the evening, participants lined up and faced each other according to address, forming a human map of NE 177th St. The weather co-operated and the party lasted well into a beautiful summer evening.

Thank you to our party planners, Nancy and Dave.
