Fun And Food On Oakridge


Share post:

About 100 Oakridge Road residents and their guests enjoyed delicious food, relaxed competition and lively conversations as they gathered Saturday for their annual neighborhood block party.

Some kids got to ride their bikes freely up and down a street where traffic sometimes moves too quickly, while others were decorating with chalk or creating forts out of big cartons. There was face-painting and a donut-eating game for the kids, and a visit by a Verona fire truck. Water balloons, shuttlecocks, bean bags and ping pong balls bounced through the air. Old and new friends enjoyed grilled hamburgers, pizza,sides, salads–and good conversation.

Enjoy the slideshow taken by resident Meg Slotkin and if your block is having a block party, consider sharing your pictures with by e-mailing them to us at [email protected].
