NNO Block Party Events

National Night Out Planning Week
July 24 – July 30, 2016

This is the time to organize your planning committee and delegate responsibilities. Planning early prevents last minute rush jobs and increases community involvement. Don’t forget to download this Block Party packet for party ideas and an NNO Evaluation form.

Here are a few suggestions on what should be discussed during planning week:

  1. How many people should we plan for? Who will get food, drinks, utensils, etc.?
  2. What kinds of activities will encourage conversation and people getting to know one another?
  3. What should we do for kids?  Games, face painting, piñata, recognition awards for good things they’ve done, coloring center, etc?
  4. Should we have music?  What kind and who will arrange for it?
  5. Do we want to close the street? If so, who will complete and submit the Special Event Permit Application (Block Party Permit) by the July 23, 2016 deadline?
  6. Should we make an invitation flyer? Who will do it?  Who will get the flyers to the neighbors?
  7. Do we need the flyer in more than one language?  Which language(s) and who will do that?
  8. How can we grow our party? (invite new streets to participate and/or encourage surrounding neighborhoods to host their own NNO party)
  9. What will we do if it rains?
  10. What activities will we have to teach our neighbors about spotting suspicious activity, how and when to report it and other crime prevention tips.

Earn one (1) entry into the grand-prize drawing when you submit photos of your planning week activities. Submissions must be mailed to P.O. Box 913, Orlando, FL 32802 or emailed to by August 12, 2016.
