Talk to your neighbors. The block party permit requires you to speak to every neighbor within the limits of your block party boundaries to find out if they approve of or oppose the event.
Obey the law. No outdoor fires, fireworks or other activities deemed illegal by Royal Oak City Ordinance or State of Michigan Statute will be permitted.
Check out entertainment. The Royal Oak Public Library offers a variety of food service items, games and outdoor activities that can be borrowed using your library card. Check out the Library of Things.
Have FUN! That's always important!
Clean up. When the party has finished, return your neighborhood to a state of tidiness that meets or exceeds the way it was before the party started.
