Nothing says summer like a block party. The whole neighborhood comes together to enjoy live music, local foods, games, crafts, and more. It’s a community celebration of the best kind. Luckily there are many to enjoy in Boston this summer and with Mayor Wu’s Block Party initiative you can even get a grant to host your own!
