All Day Event
In Your Neighborhood
Good things happen when you know your neighbors.
Mayor Lunde wants you to be a little bit bold and get to know your neighbors. Don't wait for National Night Out in August to make connection- start in May and build all summer long.
We have ideas, resources and support for you to do a small project, activity or event with your neighbors anytime in May.
Last year neighborhoods all over Brooklyn Park did a wide range of activities from neighborhood clean ups to ice cream socials.
Brainstorm with a few neighbors and then invite others. Have fun!
Neighborhood project grant
Brooklyn Park is offering small grants to support and encourage May Day projects. You could apply for up to $250.

Note for crime watch captains
If you are a crime watch captain and your neighborhood hosts a May Day event, it can count as one of your two required neighborhood watch meetings per year.
History of May Day
May Day started as a Celtic tradition as a way to celebrate spring with your neighbors. The Community Engagement Teams are encouraging you to take it one step further and use May Day as a way to get to know your neighbors and join together for a local cause in your community.
