A block party is a gathering of adjacent neighbours who want to connect and celebrate their community. It's a great way to get know your neighbours, build new friendships, and enhance the safety and awareness of your neighbourhood.
Block Parties provide the opportunity for neighbours to relax, have some fun and socialize at least once a year. Neighbours who know each other look out for one another. It’s helpful if neighbours can spot a stranger on the street, and especially if one is lurking near your home. Children need to know where they can turn in an emergency, and the difference between a friendly neighbour and a stranger. A concerned and connected neighbourhood helps to create a sense of well-being and safety for all who live there.
