NORTH BEND easy to reach . . . hard to leave



t may be the finish line for the Tour de Peaks bike rides Saturday, but the fun is only starting when you arrive at the North Bend Block Party Saturday. The annual pedestrian-friendly party covers North Bend Way and Main Avenue with food and games, plus two stages of live entertainment, headlined Saturday night by Spike and the Impalers at 7, followed by Heart by Heart at 9. There are plenty of children’s activities, as always, with a twist this year -- movies inside and video games outside. “We’re going to have a 4-D mobile game theater,” said Block Party volunteer Stacey Cepeda. Inside the huge van, a small theater setup will show short videos aimed at teens and tweens, while outside, kids can play video games at the attached gaming stations. Younger kids will definitely enjoy a visit to the petting zoo, with time for them to cuddle up with a bunny or wallaby on their laps. And they may never forget seeing the always popular Reptile Man, with his assortment of cold-blooded creatures on display ... (More inside)

Since this is a biking crowd, there will be bikes on display at the Visitor Information Center, where a North Bend bike collector is loaning out his collection of vintage bicycles for the day. Newer bikes will also be there, as riders finish up their short, medium, or long rides for the Tour de Peaks event. The Mount Si Mountain Bike Club will host a bike valet service for riders and racers alike. Just check in your bike, then collect it when you’re ready to leave. Walkers get something new, too, this year, a scavenger hunt that leads them on a search for clues in various businesses located throughout downtown North Bend. Organizer Lynn Fredenburg said there are at least eight businesses involved. All hunters who complete the challenge will be entered in a drawing for a prize. Sign up for the scavenger hunt at various

spots around the block party, including at the bike valet and the visitor center. Serious walkers can also catch a ride, on the Adventure shuttle, from the block party to one of several trailheads all day. Learn more at http://compassoutdooradventures.com/shuttle.
