EUGENE, Ore. — The 7th annual Whiteaker Block Party will take over part of downtown.
Crews were on site Friday setting up stages for the event’s many performers.
This year the party will spread down Van Buren up to Second Avenue. Organizers say they’re proud to see how much the event has grown over the years.
“It’s pretty exciting that it’s grown to be such an event that keeps coming back, especially considering it’s like basically four or five people who are just friends that get together to put this on,” said Jason Vaderhaar, Block Party Secretary.
The partying starts at 1 p.m. and lasts through 10 p.m.
