Homewood backs property tax reduction for new Krispy Kreme site

Homewood’s Giant Block Party on Saturday, Aug. 20, got off to a rough start caused by a morning of periodic deluges, but organizers and festival goers did not let that stop them from rallying in the afternoon and having a good time into the evening.

Here are scenes from afternoon and evening events, including the 9-and-under ice cream eating contest, music by the Eric Lambert Band and Final Say, dancing, face painting and bird house making.
