Block Party Trailer & Movie Chest
Neighborhood Block Party Trailer
Opportunities for neighbors to interact and get to know one another are becoming few and far between in today's on-the-go atmosphere. The city's new Neighborhood Block Party trailer allows neighborhoods like yours to host a fun, easy event to bring neighbors together.
The Block Party trailer is available to reserve year-round, free of charge, for residents of incorporated San Marcos (sorry, no ETJ use at this time). The Neighborhood Block Party Trailer program will launch on September 20, 2021 so make your reservation today!
Items included in the Trailer are 6 Tables, 30 Chairs, an Ice Chest, and assorted games--all you need to have a small block party in your neighborhood and get to know your neighbors better, except the food, people, and fun! The trailer will be delivered and picked up by City staff. The user of the Block Party Trailer assumes responsibility for the trailer and its contents from the time they receive the trailer until it is picked up by city staff. An inventory will be taken when the trailer is returned. Please notify the city of anything that is missing or damaged.
If you plan to close your street for the block party, you will be required to complete a block party road closure permit application a minimum of 15 days prior to the event. However, you do NOT need to complete a permit application if your event will be held on private property or will not be block the roadway (cars can pass by).
Neighborhood Movie Chest
The City of San Marcos has all the equipment you need to host a neighborhood movie night, except for the movie. Equipment includes a large, inflatable movie screen, projector, Blu-Ray DVD player, and speaker. This kit will be available beginning on September 9, 2021.
