How to throw the best Summer Block Party

When summer months approach many people start to plan for what has become a Long Island tradition: “The Neighborhood Block Party.” 


Suggestions for Your Block Party


People come to Long Island Party Guys and ask for advice on how to make their block party a big success. Long Island Party Guys has been providing ideas, suggestions, and party rental equipment such as water slide rentals, party tent rentals and other items from many years. And we’ve compiled a list of some fun games that you can set up at you next block party that will be sure to keep everyone entertained for hours.


Scavenger Hunt: With a twist. Write out questions that the kids have to answer: Who lives at house #10? What house does the policeman (nurse, accountant, whomever) live? How many "insert name here" live in the neighborhood? Who has a birdbath in their backyard? Fun if they do it in teams.


Water Balloon Toss: Make teams of 2 kids each and have them throw a water balloon back and forth between each other gradually increasing the distance between them. The first team to drop or break the balloon is eliminated. The last team not eliminated is the winner.


Cup Water Race: Give each kid an empty 8 ounce coffee cup. Place several buckets of water at one end and empty buckets at the other. Contestants must transfer water from the full bucket to the empty bucket using only the 8 ounce coffee cup. The person who fills the empty bucket first wins. Add to the fun and make the contestants carry the cup without using their hands.


Whipped cream eating contest: Fill up aluminum pie shells with one cherry covered in whipped cream, kids have to find the cherry, can't use your hands! Messy, but fun!


Don't be afraid of the old standbys:

  • three legged races

  • potato sack races

  • musical chairs

You'll be surprised how much fun everyone will have playing these games!
