The air might have been heavy with wildfire smoke Wednesday, Aug. 22, but the atmosphere was all fun as the City of Wilsonville hosted its second annual summer block party. Everyone was invited to Town Center Park for lawn games, rubber ducky races in the fountain, photo booth snaps and more. The Wilsonville-Boones Ferry Historicial Society invited neighbors to play a game of history trivia and peruse photos and memorabilia from the area and a pint-sized train chugged families around the park in style.
