Block Party Trailer

Want to live in a great city?   Be a great neighbor!  

Cities thrive because of great neighborhoods, and you are what makes a great neighbor.   When we know and engage with the neighbors on our block, we help create a welcoming and safe place for everyone.   One way to know your neighbors is to have a block party.  Complete the form below to obtain the no-cost permit to host a party on your block.  

To make holding a Block Party even easier, The City of Anna has the Block Party Trailer!  It includes all of the "infrastructure" a party needs, like tables, chairs and games.   If you like, we can even have our Rec crew come out and help you host.  The Rec Crew knows all the great games, icebreakers and conversations to help your party be a huge success.  

 The Block Party Trailer includes:

  • 6 ea 8’ tables                                                 
  • Traffic Cones
  • 50 folding chairs                                             
  • Lawn Games
  • Cooler
  • Buckets of Chalk

The Block Party Trailer is free to registered HOA, Neighborhood Associations and Crime Watch Groups in the City of Anna. Just complete the form below and submit it at least 10 working days' notice before your event.  Not sure if your Association is registered?  Give us a call and we will get you in the system!
