The 3rd Annual Welcome Winter Block Party covered Victoria Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues on Saturday December 7th between noon and 7 PM. The family-friendly event included ball hockey and plenty of other games. There was also an outdoor market on the sidewalk. Local craft brewers had beer and cider available. Gas powered heaters in covered areas, took the chill out of the air. DJ Randy Sherman provided a classic rock spin on things and his performance was appreciated by the audience.
Later, Dave Coalmine, took the stage and played a couple of popular tunes, before getting into a medley of Christmas songs, which both, young and old enjoyed and some sang along to.
The Welcome Winter Block Party had a cool vibe and everyone seemed warm and sociable in the downtown setting. Expect the 4th Annual next year.
