Nothing brings a neighborhood together like a block party. It's an interactive and engaging event that gives neighbors an excuse to connect in a fun and unique way. Whether you're a seasoned party host or organizing your first block party, we're here to help you make it truly awesome!

Plan, plan, plan

To ensure a successful block party, start by checking with your city about permits and regulations. Knowing the boundaries of the party area and understanding any restrictions on noise or alcohol is crucial. You'll also need to consider crowd control and safety measures. OTW Safety offers a range of barricades that can help you section off areas and divert traffic safely.

Choose the right date and time

Timing is everything when it comes to hosting a block party. Consider the weather and choose a date that allows for outdoor enjoyment. Check for any major events or holidays that might clash with your party, as you want as many neighbors as possible to attend. And don't worry about unexpected weather changes – OTW's barricades are built to withstand any conditions.

Decide on a theme and stick to it

A theme adds excitement and coherence to your block party. Whether it's a neighborhood potluck, a sports-related event, or a Halloween and Harvest celebration, a theme sets the mood and helps guests know what to expect. Decorate accordingly and ensure your vendors are on board with the theme as well.

Come up with activities

Engaging activities are the lifeblood of any block party. Tailor your activities to suit your theme and consider the age range of your guests. From simple games like beanbag toss booths to creative endeavors like building go-kart tracks out of barricades, let your imagination run wild.

Find partners for your event

If you're hosting a large block party, it's wise to find partners to share the workload. Collaborate with others to handle food and drinks, music, and cleanup. This not only lightens your load but also fosters better neighborly connections.

Don't forget to clean up

Cleaning up after the party is often overlooked but crucial to ensure a positive experience for everyone. Set up enough trash cans throughout the event area and use signage and barricades to clearly indicate where guests can dispose of their waste. Having volunteers manage the bins and pick up debris throughout the event will ensure a tidier and simpler cleanup process at the end.
