Abundant Life's 3rd Annual Block Party
One of the fun things we do during the summer is our block party. The block party is a celebration of life, family and friends, and the spectacular summers we enjoy in Summit County. There is a lot of work that goes into this event. The planning starts in February and no matter how early we start to plan, it seems we are honing the fine details all the way to the day of the event.
The block party starts with an abbreviated worship service Sunday morning. The truck with all the inflatables and games arrives from Denver about 10:30 and we have about an hour-and-a-half to get the inflatables up, the dunk tank filled, and all games ready to go.
From noon until 3:00, kids jump around in the bounce house, take on the 12-foot high obstacle course, get their faces painted, and win prizes.
Nelson and his team fires up the grill, then at noon the festivities begin. We really enjoy seeing people having a good time. The block party is a great opportunity for people to get to know their neighbors. It also offers something fun for visitors to the county to do.
This year's block party was July 13th. We got to meet new neighbors and reacquaint ourselves with neighbors who have been around awhile. Already looking forward to next year's Block Party.
