North Riverside residents interested in having a block party must submit a written request to the Village Administrator for approval. All requests must include the date and location of the block party, a rain date (if applicable), scheduled time for the party, and 2 emergency contacts for the day of the event. In addition, please specify whether any entertainment (DJ or live music) or amusement devices (i.e. bounce houses, inflatables, water slides, etc.) will be provided and located. Special requests for appearances by the Village's police and/or fire departments must also be specified at the time of the request.
Please note that all requests must be received by the Village Administrator at least ten business days before the date of the party to allow enough time for approval to be granted. Village approval usually occurs within 2-3 business days after all information has been submitted.
