Who Doesn’t Love a Good Block Party?

For the tenth year, folks who live in the 10200 block of Sutherland Road threw up a few barriers, broke out a grill, and threw a little party for their neighbors.  The Sutherland Road block parties fall around Halloween and this year’s included a costume parade for kids, adults, and pets.

Does this look like fun?  Of course it does.  If you want to throw your own block party, apply for a road closure permit at least three weeks before the event with the Montgomery County Department of Transportation.  All the information you need, along with the application form, may be found on the Montgomery County website’s 311 section under “ Block Party Street Closure Request.”   ■
