BOULEVARD BLAST!…Let’s do this!

Old Oaks is trying to decide if we have enough interest in planning a block party on Wilson Ave. Blvd this spring (early June 2016). OOCA has thrown numerous fund raiser in order to help fund this event. In the past the Blvd. Blast focused more on Children activities. This spring, however, we wanted the emphasis to be more adult centered – Bands, food, beer, vendors selling crafts/art work – and less children “themed”.

Ideally we would like to close Wilson Ave. off for the event, have vendors set tables up on the street, have a “beer garden” set up on the Blvd (which requires a police officer), food, and three bands that would play for about an hour (each following the other), and end the night with some dance music.

All of this would, while doable, take some planning. If we have some interest (by this I mean yes I will help plan/do – fill in the blank – ).

Some of the action items that would need a volunteer would be;

1) Getting petition signed to close street

2) Finding information about selling beer

3) Finding bands

4) Organizing the food

5) Advertising

6) Organizing vendors to sell crafts/art work

7) Contacting the police department

8) Attending fund raising meetings

9) Working the beer garden/food stand

10) Some low key children activities – i.e face painting, a game or two

Please send me and e-mail gray.27@osu.edu or give me a call at 614-599-0106 and let me know how you want to help.

With all the new people moving into the neighborhood, I am hoping we can get around 20 volunteers to help with this as I think it would be a nice way to continue our work in making Old Oaks a great place to live.
