University Heights is the block party capitol

University Heights has to be the block party capitol of the country. Just telephone the University Heights Community Coordinator Walter Stinson and you are on your way. It can be as small as a few families pulling out a grill, lawn chairs and games for the children or as elaborate as neighbors chipping to rent rocket cars and clowns. If a police patrol car and fire engine are available, they will be there for children to explore, learn about and have tons of fun. And maybe, they will even get to blow the horn.

Some blocks parties are coordinated with family reunions, others just continue a neighborhood tradition. But all agree, the feeling of community is special and they look forward to making that one phone call to Stinson to get their block party date set. Enjoy the University Heights July Block Party photos from Bushnell, Edgerton, Saybrook, Channing and Meadowbrook roads.

Anita Kazarian is a resident of University Heights and is a candidate for UH city council this fall.
