Three years ago we began having block parties on the Sunday after Run Around The Square. Since our block is along the race route we already have barricades available so it easy to do. Of course we have a wonderful neighborhood with children and parents of all ages.
The kids play on one side of the street and the parents hang out in the center of the block and listen to the sounds of our resident poet and songwriter. I encourage you to check out the poignant and humorous melodies of Matt Aquiline and the Dead End Streets.
If you don’t have a block party consider it. It is a great way to get to know your neighbors. This is Pittsburgh and we are all about neighborhoods and community.
