The City of Bellingham is excited to announce the launch of the Bellingham Block Party trailer, stocked with everything needed to host a block party in your neighborhood. Simply add food, drinks and your neighbors!
The fun will follow as your neighborhood enjoys the contents of the trailer — tables and chairs, coolers/utensils, a variety of games, equipment for closure of the street, safety supplies and so much more. A City staff member will drop off the trailer to you on Friday and it's yours for the weekend until we pick it back up on Monday.
The trailer is available for weekend reservations by any Bellingham resident, at no cost, from Memorial Day through Labor Day. While there is no charge for the trailer, it must be reserved in advance and the renter must complete an application and obtain a free special event permit.
The project, modeled after a highly successful example from Boulder, Colorado, was made possible with a grant from the Whatcom Community Foundation's Project Neighborly, which encourages projects that develop a sense of community and promote neighborliness. In addition to the grant funds, multiple City departments contributed resources and supplies to make the trailer a reality.
