Coming Together

Neighbors who know one another are more likely to feel invested in their community. Here are some ideas for events that will bring your neighbors together.

Block Party

  • Every party needs music! If possible, find a local band. A good stereo system is still an acceptable way to set the mood.
  • Set up kid-friendly activities such as games and face-painting.
  • Hold contests. Find local businesses to donate prizes or coupons.
  • Hold a pet parade.
  • Set up a photo booth.
  • Make it a potluck.

Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt

  • Use a local park or school yard.
  • Plan a rain date just in case.
  • Recruit helpers to stuff plastic eggs.
  • Assign certain egg colors to certain age groups and make them more or less difficult to find.
