Residents now have access to a trailer full of supplies to make hosting a neighborhood block party easy and enjoyable.
“The Sugar Cube,” a block party trailer intended to help foster neighborhood relationships, was created foster neighborhood relationships and as a result of a efforts to streamline the city’s special events offerings and avoid duplication of effort by leveraging existing event opportunities already occurring within neighborhoods.
“The Sugar Cube provides a convenient way to bring people together where they live in hopes of finding similarities that will bring them closer together. Neighbors who connect with one another only strengthen our community,” said Community Engagement Manager Carrie Paxton-Lamke.
Residents can reserve The Sugar Cube free of charge by completing an online form after their community group, homeowners’ or neighborhood association completes a short registration process with the City.
“In our increasingly digital world, we often lack the opportunity to get to know our neighbors face-to-face,” said Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation Kimberly Terrell, “Our goal is that The Sugar Cube inspires our neighborhoods to come outside, meet one another and recreate a National Night Out-style block party any weekend of the year.”
