The Lynn Haven Heritage Society held a block party Saturday for the community to attend.

The event was free, and it had everything from games for kids to beer and bingo for the adults. Live music was being played as people roamed the street shopping at various vendors.

Judy Tinder, member of the Lynn Haven Heritage Society, said, "We usually have a block party here, the city normally does it, and they have in the years past, and this year they chose to give it up and so I jumped on it and said 'well, Heritage Society will do it,' and I'm just thrilled the depth that we have, we've had such great response, and the people that are here tonight say 'now, you have our name and address because we want to come back next year'' so there's just nothing better than that."

All proceeds from the event go to the Lynn Haven Heritage Society.
