Many East Grand Rapids neighborhoods enjoy block parties. The block party season is May 1st through the 2nd full week in October each year. You must register your block party to request barricades.
To register, complete a block party request form and drop it off to the Public Safety Department Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. The application must be submitted no later than two (2) business days in advance of the desired date. Forms are also available at the Public Safety Department, 770 Lakeside Drive SE.
