The weekend before last, Matt and I went to the Whiteaker Block Party. The Whit is an interesting neighborhood in Eugene. When I first moved here, it was known for being home to anarchists and junkies. It's also home to the tavern that I took Matt to on our first date. It's now becoming an up and coming but funky part of town with more families moving in. Several local breweries have tap rooms in the neighborhood and there are some great restaurants. The Whit is still a little different than the rest of town, it still boasts hippies, political activists and some junkies but it's not as rough as it used to be.
The block party is basically a big street fair with music, booths and food. There were a lot of concerts at the breweries and a big stages on the streets. We watched acrobats outside of a wine tasting room and they were amazing. This couple was my favorite:
