KINGMAN – Hundreds of people flocked downtown Friday night for the ‘Pink Heals’ Block Party.

The event ran from 5:30 to 9 p.m. and included a pink ribbon drop, a cornhole tournament between Black Bridge Brewery and House of Hops (Black Bridge Brewery won), a kids’ obstacle course and Hot Wheels races.

The street festival was part of a number of events put on by Kingman Regional Medical Center, the city of Kingman and the Kingman Cancer Care Unit to raise awareness on the fight against cancer.

Continuing events through October include “Go Pink” Week, where businesses, schools and other organizations can adorn their establishments with all things pink to show support for those affected by cancer.

There also will be a Women’s Health Fair at KRMC’s Hualapai Campus Oct. 15, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Kingman Route 66 Rotary Club Foundation’s 9th Annual Brews and Brats Oktoberfest at Locomotive drew plenty of customers with their beer, food and live music.

The event ran through Saturday.
