My neighbors and I are going to have a little Halloween party. We always feel so isolated passing out candy alone in our houses, and wish we could be hanging out together. This year, we have decided to all converge at one house and project a scarey movie onto a wall outside, drink our wine, and pass out candy to the kiddies. We thought about doing a block party, but I think we are a bit too late to get all that organized, but I just looked into it and can’t believe how easy it is! You just download the form on the City of Kansas City’s website and mail it in. NO FEE! Free party! And if you are a member of a homes association, see if they offer any money or incentives for your party. They really like to encourage block parties because they help neighbors get to know each other, which helps fight crime and creates happy neighborhoods. I remember getting a mailer from my homes association once saying that they would give money for our party to buy food and drinks, so it’s worth asking right?
