Young artists add their brushwork to a mural celebrating Parkside on Saturday during the annual Parkside Block Party, a celebration of families, diversity and unity in the Portland neighborhood. Festivities included face painting, children’s games, information tables, food, good company, good cheer, and a chance to meet neighbors in a pleasant setting.
