NAMPA -- The 6th annual Community Block Party took place in Nampa today. The party featured all sorts of events and booths including a dunk tank, free food, bounce houses, a strong men demonstration, martial arts, music, and medieval jousting.

The Grace Bible Church hosts the block party every year and says they're trying to create a sense of community through all this fun.

We like bringing the community together, fostering this sense of being here for each other. We know you, you know us. We're part of your community. Realizing that we need each other, said Pastor Keith Wagner, from Grace Bible Church. It's not just individuals that make up a town. It's families. It's all of us coming together as tight-knit community.

The block party also had informational booths from Nampa EMT and Fire, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Idaho State Police, and the Canyon County Sheriff's Office.
