Block Party Trailer

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). 

Items included in the Trailer are 6 6-foot folding tables, 4 folding picnic tables, 32 folding chairs, 4 ice chests, 3 water coolers, Games (Giant Jenga, Corn Hole, Giant Yahtzee, Sacks for sack races, sidewalk chalk), and a sound system -- 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 block the roadway (cars can pass by).  

More Information & Other City Lending Programs

We also have a neighborhood movie chest available that includes a blow-up screen, DVD player projector, and sound system. Movie is not included and purchase of a public performance copyright license from an outside vendor is required prior to reserving this equipment. For more information, email Neighborhood Enhancement or call (512) 393-8443.

See other items available to lend through our Home Equipment Lending Program (HELP), including fence staining, tree trimming, power washing, and curb addressing kits.

Please note: If you are wanting to book the trailer for a weekend event, book it for the Friday prior to the weekend. Because the city employees do not work during the weekend, we drop off the trailer with you on Friday afternoon and pick it back up on Monday.  If you have any questions about that, feel free to contact Neighborhood Enhancement.
