What is a Block Party?

A block party is where a group of people living within a defined area consisting of one or more blocks of street unite in fellowship though a social situation consisting of food, games and conversation. A block party can be any size, large or small. It can also be to raise funds for special events or projects or just to have good, old fashioned, fun. The important thing is to decide what type of party you want to have. Most block parties are free for members. Food is usually donated and families may want to bring a dish to pass.

Block parties are a perfect way to meet your neighbors, to celebrate a hard won improvement victory by your Block Club, or just to have fun. Remember that hard work and team effort are the surest ways to guarantee your block party’s success.
