Fourth annual ‘Blocktoberfest’

Karen Bassham

Neighbors competed in hoisting mugs filled with water in a Blocktoberfest contest on Oct. 26. In this fourth annual event, about 65 folks brought food and met their neighbors from Lindenwood, Stonewood, Blackwood, Ironwood, Baywood, and Orangewood. These blocks are unofficially named the “New Woods,” because houses are built in the last five years (and are still being built) on the east side of Robson Ranch, south of Lindenwood.
