2018 Night to Unite - Important Information

n2u-news

Registration

We are offering online registration for our Night to Unite block parties.  Registration is ONLINE ONLY. 

THE DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS JULY 20. We will accept registrations AFTER that date, but there is no promise or guarantee that supplies will be available, or that your block party will receive a visitor.

Street Closure

We do not allow street closure.

Yard Signs

Yard signs will be given to neighborhoods registering for the first time, or if your previous yard sign was taken or otherwise no longer useable. You are responsible for keeping it in a safe place from year to year. We also have blank yard signs if you would like to design/decorate your own.

Supply Pick Up

Supplies must be picked up on one of two dates listed:

Friday, August 3
3 to 6 PM
Blaine City Hall


Saturday, August 4
7 to 11 AM
Blaine City Hall


On pick up day, please:

  • Look for signs directing you where to go. 
  • Do not come in before these dates to collect your supplies. 
  • We require a signature when you pick up supplies, and we will ask you to verify the location of your block party. 

If you do not want supplies, let me know ASAP.

Change in Plans

Have a "Plan B" in the event of stormy weather or a family emergency. Last year, we had registered parties pick up supplies and then not host a block party. If you change your plans, please let us know so that we can organize our teams. We do verify whether or not block parties participate. If you need to cancel please contact Kim Kiley, Crime Prevention Specialist at 763-785-6186 or by email at kkiley@blainemn.gov.

On August 7 - Night to Unite

Please be outside and ready for our teams at your designated start time. If you indicate 6 PM while registering, please be ready to go at 6 PM. Our teams will make every effort to visit your party, and may stop back if time permits. We have a very short window of time to visit as many registered block parties as possible.

Pet Photo Contest

We are holding our Pet Photo Contest again this year. To participate, please pick up a bandana and include it in the picture. Entries should be submitted to kkiley@blainemn.gov. For more information on contest rules and information needed when emailing your entries, please visit our Pet Contest page.
