Block Parties

Block parties are a fun way to get to know your neighbors.  All block parties must be approved by the Village prior to the scheduled event.  In order to receive approval, a representative of the neighborhood must complete and sign a Block Party Application.

As you plan your block party, please keep the following regulations in mind:
  • All residents on the block must sign the application whether they will be participating or not.
  • Public Works will drop off the barricades prior to the event and collect them after the event.  Applicants shall not use vehicles as a form of barricade.
  •  Noise levels should not disturb residents at any time.
  • Children must be adequately supervised at all times.
  • All tables, chairs and other items placed on the street (including inflatable jump houses) should keep within the area next to the curb to allow passage of emergency vehicles.  
  • Do not stretch wires, ropes, nets, lights, banners and other items across the street.  These could prevent access by emergency vehicles.
  • Applicants are reminded that “cover charges” or “admission fees” charged to cover the costs of alcoholic beverages are prohibited; and would require a liquor license and dram shop insurance. 
  • Completed applications must be submitted at least 7 days prior to the event.
  • The Fire Department must sign the application before submitting to the Village.

We wish you the best at your block party and are here to help with the process every step of the way.
