Block Parties in Plano! 

Why have a Block Party?


Block parties are simply a GREAT way to meet your neighbors!  They provide a casual relaxed setting where residents can meet, play, eat, and hopefully find similarities that bring them closer together.  With a little effort and consistency, a neighborhood of strangers can be transformed into a connected community of families that care for each other and the overall health and vibrancy of their neighborhood.
