Back the Blue block party draws large crowds

MIDLAND CO. -- It was a fun evening at the annual Back the Blue event Saturday at the Rock the Desert grounds in Midland County.

Many turned out to take part in all kinds of family fun activities with local law enforcement agencies, including Odessa and Midland Police Departments along with Midland and Ector County Sheriff's Office and of course Texas DPS.

All proceeds collected from the block party benefit the Permian Basin Assist the Officer Foundation.
