Community Block Party

What is a Block Party?

A block party gives you and your neighbours the opportunity to socialize and have fun together. Block parties help promote a stronger sense of community, enhance safety within the neighbourhood, and celebrate the reasons why people call Edson home.

Why Should You Have a Block Party?
