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.
Street Closures To close down your residential street for a block party fill out this form and return at least two weeks before your event.
