Block parties and bikes parades
Neighbors usually hold a party on their block with a yummy cookout or delicious potluck. Sometimes the parties include a kid’s parade, or games and activities for everyone.
Often neighbors do a volunteer project in their neighborhood, such as painting over graffiti or do lawn care for an elderly neighbor. No matter what the project, the purpose is to bring everyone together to build a strong, safe neighborhood.
