More than 1,000 people came out for the City of Kirkland’s first city-wide block party last weekend.

The event, known as “Crossing Kirkland,” took place at several points along the Cross Kirkland Corridor. It was filled with food truck vendors, games, crafts and exploration activities.

“Crossing Kirkland was community building in action,” according to a city press release. “Hatched out of the ‘For the Love of Kirkland’ event last winter, Crossing Kirkland beckoned the community to engage with the Cross Kirkland Corridor and each other in new ways.”

The event was designed and put on by the Kirkland neighborhood associations.
