The 2010 Central Library Block Party takes place Saturday, August 14 from noon until 3pm on SW Taylor between 10th and 11th Avenues.
This event is primarily for the kids. The Lions of Batucada will be on hand to provide some samba-style percussion, and activities include henna craft with Silk and Stone, bug petting with the Oregon Zoo, circus skills with W.E. C.A.R.E., and Seussical bouquets with artist Kathy Karbo.
Art Media will be on hand orchestrating a communal art project, and kids can play with LEGOs, alter their t-shirts, and have their faces painted. There’s even going to be AM Pro 300 bowling (though I don’t know exactly how they’re doing this one).
