Halloween, Christmas, and the Fourth of July are favorite times for neighbors to hold annual block parties. However, the possibilities go way beyond the holidays. A Caribbean Night’s theme, 50′ & 60’s in the Hood theme, and Favorite Sports Team Fashion parties are just some of the ideas to share some fun with the people next door and beyond. It may make the most sense for several neighbors to share in the heavy lifting, but if a potluck and BYOB is featured, everyone who comes can do their part.
Setting up some backyard games can add additional fun to the party. Don’t stress about making it extravagant ordeal, a simple gathering can be a great way to boost neighborhood relations!
