Should you decide to go for it, and host the first summer blowout of the New Millennium, the party planners at Shindigz would be delighted to fill you in on all the fun details of any of the themes listed above!

Organize a Pet or Bike Parade in your neighborhood, and end the day on a purr-fect note…with a summer street party. Love your neighbors? Join together with them in planning a huge summer street party. Involve every family in the planning, and assign each family a “job”, or form a committee, and collect a preset amount of money from each family for the festivities. The collective pot should be big enough to pay for all the events of the day if a few families are pulling the party together. On the big day, cordon off an agreed upon section of the road. Purchase or rent 8′ banquet tables, and cover them with plastic tablecloths, and lots of balloon bouquets. Fill them with mounds of delicious foods. This can either be a potluck or a catered affair, just have plenty of food on hand! Fill several plastic tubs with ice, and add plenty of beverages. Tie balloons and streamers to anything that doesn’t move for a festive look. Rent a moon bounce, dunk tank, duck pond, Velcro wall, or sumo-wrestler mat, and a good Karaoke system. Hire a magician, a clown, or balloon person. Set up an obstacle course, have sack races, and play other traditional family games. Hire a DJ, or just ask the neighbor with the best stereo equipment and CD collection to be in charge of the music for the day. Crank up the music and dance in the street…a guaranteed blast.

Treat friends and family with birthdays that fall in the month of December to a “Christmas in July Birthday Blowout”. For once, they won’t be shortchanged on gifts!

Choose a worthy local charity or a family in need, and create a fund-raiser to give help where it is most needed. Neighborhood carnivals provide the perfect vehicle. Children of all ages can be involved in the planning and execution of this event.

Spend a day with your family lying in the grass sipping lemonade. Gaze up at the clouds and see a fantasy parade of all things wonderful float by.

Plan time to do absolutely nothing but savor the simple joys of a lazy summer day!
