How many of your neighbors do you know? No matter if you just moved to a new neighborhood, or if you’ve lived there all your life, it can understandably be hard to meet most of your neighbors. Deciding to organize a neighborhood party is one of the best ways to meet those that you don’t already know as well as create community spirit.
However if you decide to organize one without enlisting help, or don’t have the proper know-how, you may quickly cause yourself to become overwhelmed. With our simple neighborhood party tips, you and your neighbors will receive maximum enjoyment, without shelling out a lot of dough.
Tip #1 – Enlist Neighbors to Help
We recommend enlisting a group of 5 to 6 dedicated volunteers to help you organize. Once you have enlisted enough volunteers then you can assign tasks. For example, if you’re planning to have activities for the kiddos, you’ll need someone to oversee the activities so that nothing goes awry.
Tip #2 – Receive a City Permit
While this may not be needed in some communities it is best to check with your local Arizona representative to avoid being shut down or fined.
Tip #3 – Send out Invitations
Probably one of the most cost-effective ways to get the word out is to make your own fliers with your personal computer, print out however many copies you think you’ll need, and distribute them throughout the neighborhood. Here is where you can also enlist the help of your kids – putting them in charge of flyer delivery – they’ll love it.
Tip #4 – Safety Precautions
Ensure that you have taken every safety precaution that you can possibly think of: food preparation and storage, supervision of children, lighting is in place and that you have barricaded off the area (especially in larger residential neighborhoods) so that no one can drive through your party: just to name a few. Action Barricade rents everything you will need, such as barricades and lighting, to block off your chosen party venue.
