What You Need To Prepare for a Block Party

Throwing a block party is a great way to get people out of their homes and into the community. Plus, it’s a perfect time to have fun with others while eating some great food. However, throwing a party of that size isn’t easy, and you need to know a lot to prepare for a block party.

Get the Date and Time

The first step in preparing for a block party is setting the location and date for your party. While most block parties happen around the house of the host, they don’t have to if that’s inconvenient. Once you determine a good place and block off a time that works for the most people, it’s time to move on to the next steps.

Seek the Proper Permits

The next step in throwing a block party is getting the proper permission to throw one. You can’t just start a party on the street and not get in trouble. There are regulations and laws in place, so you need a permit to host a party. These aren’t too difficult to obtain, but you’ll need to reach out to your local authorities to start the process.

Find the Entertainment

No party is perfect without entertainment for the guests. Most block parties use local bands for live music and to promote the community. You can also get things like bouncy houses or throw the party near a park for the kids to play at.

Food for the Party

When you throw a party for a bunch of people, you need food. There are many ways you can prepare the food, such as catering or making it yourself. However, you can try reaching out to local restaurants for food sponsorships. This can boost the community and improve the quality of your party. Since parties are prone to producing a lot of waste, make sure you rent a dumpster and ask them the right questions before renting it.

Get the Word Out

The last thing you need to prepare for a block party is the invitations. Throwing a party without anyone coming by isn’t going to go well, so spread the word on social media and local sources. Tell your friends to tell their friends and get a listing in local papers or news sites. This will bring people to your party and make it a success.

This is how you throw a successful block party and uplift the local community at the same time. As long as you go through these steps, you can have a good party that everyone will enjoy.
