Block Party

All went well today---weather was PERFECT and we had a big crowd! Everything was free and we ran out of hot dogs (had nearly 500 of those), popcorn and the line for the cotton candy was ALWAYS at least 20-30 minutes long. It being our 6th year, local people know about it and become repeat attenders. We also rent a couple of big blow up things (slide, obstacle course, etc) and the last couple of years have coordinated with the Preschool Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser. Also have the "freebie" carnival type games, face painting and health fair. I would say we had around 700 or more. Local groups come in to do entertainment which also helps our attendance. Even put our new bus to use as a large billboard in the Kroger parking lot with a banner on each side parked at the end of the parking lot!

Sounds like a busy but fun-filled and rewarding time was had by all. Glad the weather cooperated. We had more like a date -- took the bus to Metrocenter and had the soup and salad lunch at Olive Garden before walking about 2/3 of the way home and then caught the bus for the final two miles.
