Block parties are a fun way for neighbours to get to know each other in a relaxed and friendly setting.
Organized by residents for residents, block parties are free but do require a permit. Please note that your request may be refused if other parties are already scheduled to take place at the same time and in the same area. The Town does not supply BBQs or outdoor furniture.
