Does your neighborhood participate in the National Night Out? We moved to Ballard 4 years ago and it was the first time I had ever heard of it. I love the yearly block party, it reminds me of when I was little and lived in LA with my parents, everyone knew everyone else in the neighborhood. They would get together from time to time and do potlucks, pool parties or (my favorite) fondue parties!
Our block always has a good turn out and this year there was the addition of some live music. Everyone brings a dish, I made fresh spring rolls and Dayne brought Fish House Punch in our self serve beverage dispenser. It was a big hit and we didn't really have much left at the end of the night!
It was nice to catch up with people we don't see regularly and meet some newer additions to the 'hood. And who doesn't like to eat, drink and listen to music in someone's yard on a warm summer night?
