Does your neighborhood throw a block party for the Fourth of July or did you have these parties on your block during your childhood? Share your tips and your memories with us at MWLT!
If you don’t have the time or the help to put this together in time for Independence Day, you can still have a block party anytime this summer!
How about throwing a summer block party complete with lemonade, corn-on-the-cob, hot dogs, apple pie and fun and games?! This gives you a reason to celebrate it with your neighbors by having an old-fashioned, patriotic block party.Not only is it a great way to get to know your neighbors, you can also make treasured memories for the kids and foster a sense of community for everyone.
If you are fortunate to have young kids in your neighborhood, consider adding a parade complete with decorated wagons, bicycles, and homemade instruments. You can also include old-fashioned games such as tug of war, flashlight tag, sack races, water balloon games or a scavenger hunt.
