Sommer Block Parties

Looking forward to another fun year of block parties!  These block parties invite all Sommer Place families to travel around all the streets to meet our wonderful neighbors.  The block parties are not intended to just be for that street – it is a neighborhood wide event that travels throughout the streets of Sommer Place.

What do we do? Bring your family (children are welcome), folding chairs and beverages to the street that is hosting.  If it rains, the street has the option to move the party inside a neighboring garage or cancel.

What does the street do?  The people living on the street hosting the block party can volunteer to bring snacks, desserts, water, juice boxes, etc.  If you are interested in bringing something, please contact your street captain (listed beside the streets listed below).

Where & When: Below are the dates each street will be hosting a block party.  The parties will begin at 5:30pm.

2017 Sommer Place Block Party Dates and Streets. Block parties will start from June 2, 2017 to August 25, 2017, every Friday night at 6pm. Grab your family and lawn chairs for a fun summer.
