I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream!

There is nothing better than getting together with neighbours over the summer months. Street parties are a great way to build community and connect with the neighbours you don’t get to see often. Organizing is best kept simple with a BBQ or potluck style dinner. Live music is a great idea, as there is always an amateur musician on the street! Older kids can provide face painting and Pinterest has great ideas for games or crafts that will keep the kids busy.

If you need to close off your street to traffic, here is a link to info about obtaining a City of Toronto Party Permit.

It’s ok to ask for outside help! A few times this year I have sent an ice cream trucks to client organized street parties. Reach out if your are organizing an event with your neighbours this summer. An ice cream truck is perfect for all ages and always a big hit.
