Block party at 2600 Block West 7th (Trafalgar to Stephens).

BlockParty2600Trafalgar (1) BlockParty2600Trafalgar (2) DSC01859So we have our 6 block party kits and they’re roaming around the west side having lots of fun at parties.

The new version cart uses these carts – 4 are like this; 2 are the other version. These hold a lot and are more flexible as things can extend.

As time goes on we also add things. Kit #1 now has tie-dyed bunting/flags and also green bunting/flags that say “block party” as well as fabric, rope and clothes pegs to make your own.

Good times to borrow or return a cart are the 3rd Wednesday Potluck at Kits House or the 3rd or 4th Tuesday.  Most people then just keeps the cart till it’s booked but if you don’t have space you can return it.

Joanne and I are having fun sending our kits off to parties. It’s as if we’re going ourselves and appreciate your sending photos.
