Block Party in a Box / everything you need to plan and execute a successful block party

05. Having Fun

While the majority of your block party will be organic in nature, neighbours talking to one another, etc., it can’t hurt to have some pre-planned activities for the children (and young-at-heart adults) in attendance, to help keep everyone engaged and entertained.

Activities can include tried and trusted games like the egg toss, three-legged race or even bottle bowling. You shouldn’t let your budget be the limit to the types of activities your block party includes. There are more low-budget and hi-fun activities than you think there are.
