How to Throw the Perfect Block Party

Summer is in full swing and that means it’s time to get together with family, friends and neighbors to enjoy the nice weather and each other’s company.

While get-togethers are of course year round, large-scale block parties are one type of event which can typically only happen during the summer.

The outside events are subject to the whims and willies of the weather, making summer the nicest and safest time of the year to shut down your street and get the whole neighborhood together for a great time.

There can be a wide variety in the type of block party you want to throw, but as a general rule, just follow these steps and the whole neighborhood will be loving their night of fun.

When, Where and How?

When throwing block parties and potentially shutting down streets, such matters typically have to approved by the local government.

The most important details are the location, which is typically the street you live on or another suitable area, and when the party will be held.

Most cities will have a set time period when these parties can go on, perhaps no earlier than noon or no later than 10 p.m.

Figure out a set time and place before clearing the party through the appropriate channels. Submitting a block party often requires a small fee, so decide if you want to pay the amount yourself or ask your neighbors to all chip in on the cost.

Secure Food and Drinks

Of course, no block party can go on without a good offering of food and beverages. Since it is a party for the entire street or neighborhood, consider making it a potluck, and ask individuals to bring a dish or item of their own for everyone to share.

Otherwise, you could cater in a meal from a restaurant, but that too would require everyone to split the costs. Since it will most likely be hot out, make sure you have enough water on hand to keep everyone hydrated and happy.

Get Some Entertainment

Block parties are great to mingle and chat with everyone there, but it can get to be a bit much after a while. Consider adding in some entertainment to liven things up when they quiet down.

A sports game could be a good choice, or many people opt to hire DJs to provide a musical experience for everyone. They can take requests, play favorites, and add a whole new level of excitement to an already amazing block party.
