Sidney block party, car show is Sunday, Aug. 20

PORT ORCHARD — Residents on or near Sidney Avenue will once again kick up their heels at the Third Annual Sidney Block Party and Classic Car Cruise on Sunday, Aug. 20 on the campus of First Christian Church in Port Orchard.

The block party, which is free and open to everyone, will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“You’ll see some flashy classic cars and trucks, and a few amazing new ones,” event coordinator Ron Finney said. “Our event is festive and relaxing, and it keeps growing each year.”

The Sidney Block Party also offers what organizers say is one of the best barbecues around. The barbecue will include pulled-pork sandwiches, coleslaw, home-made baked beans and dessert.

Organizers said three popular local groups will provide live music with a diversity of styles. Family activities include a bouncy toy, face painting and games for kids.

“This is a non-religious event. Our sole purpose is to build relationships in our neighborhood and community,” Finney said. “In this digital, internet world, I think we are rediscovering the joy of community, of family and a sense of belonging.”

Those will classic or unique cars are asked to arrive a little early to the event — between 8-9 a.m., if possible. An outdoor worship service begins at 9 a.m.

First Christian Church is at 4885 SW Hovde Rd., in Port Orchard, next to Grey Chevrolet. For more information, visit or call 360-873-8172.

— An earlier version of this story stated the event was on Sunday, Aug.21. The correct date is Aug. 20, as noted above.
