Looking for a lively community event complete with cool technology and tools, vehicle safety checks and fabulous food? Look no further than the upcoming James Street Block Party on Friday and Saturday, June 16 and 17.
Deciding to build on what had been the annual sales event, Tool Fair, the team at Hardware Sales set out to create an even bigger and better event. They partnered with Judd & Black Appliance and Les Schwab on James Street to bring the first annual James Street Block Party to the community. The block party offers the perfect opportunity to toast summer and the community with sales, food and fun for these three Bellingham businesses. Most importantly it provides a great opportunity for the businesses to connect with their neighbors.
Since the event will be held on Father’s Day weekend, it is also the perfect opportunity to grab a great deal on the best gift for dad on his special day. From tires to tools and appliances to grills, you will find exactly what you need and what he wants!
Each of the three business locations will feature new and cutting-edge product and service demonstrations, fantastic food choices from some of the best food trucks in town and great deals on what they each have to offer from their own respective businesses and industries.
Would dad (or you) like a new television? It could be yours if you win the drawing. Be sure to get your punch card stamped at each location to enter to win a 55-inch Samsung Curved 4K ultra HD TV. Check out the television on display at Judd & Black Appliance, valued at $1,099!
Hardware Sales is continuing with their always-popular 23rd Annual Tool Fair with over thirty vendors and live demonstrations of new and popular tools. For the kids, Saturday brings a Bouncy House and a fun and educational safety event from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The kids can play and learn while you catch up on the latest in gadgets and tools.
At their James Street location, Les Schwab will feature a free pre-trip safety check during the block party event while you peruse the activities and products or grab a bite to eat. It is a good way to get ready for those annual summer family road trips or to just check in on the safety of your vehicle.
Judd & Black Appliance will have a representative from Samsung on Friday showing off the latest cool new technology with connected products including the Family Hub refrigerator. This kitchen staple has a tablet built right into the door to help you and your family get even more organized.
You definitely won’t want to miss the representative from Weber at Judd & Black Appliance on Saturday who will be demonstrating the new line of Genesis 2 grills, answering questions and sharing tips on using the Barbeque.
As you take in the demonstrations and vendors, be sure to stop by the incredible food trucks also featured at each location on both days of the event. With Feast and Bare Bones BBQ on Friday and JT’s Smokin’ BBQ, Hot Mess and Delicious Mischief on Saturday, you will be sure to find some great food while you shop and have some fun with the community.
