Burlington Street Christmas Party 2005

Home Up

For a few years our street would have an old fashioned street block party about two weeks prior to Christmas with the road blocked off for a few hours and several of the homes would have refreshment stands set up for all to enjoy.  It was free to the public and usually advertised the event to mostly family, friends, etc. but I guess it got too big too quick.  I will insert pixs of some of the decor on our street and our street still decorates but the refreshment booths and road blocked off was discontinued last year.  Hope this brings back a few memories for those that have had to opportunity to have an old fashioned street block party.  We kept Christmas music going from dusk dark until 10ish or so via a small amplifier and CD player.  I did not reduce the resolution on the original .jpg pixs and their full size is around 400 to 500 pixel which is way more than you need and  my bad on this one.  Since web publishing I now save the .jpg files at a much reduced resolution for screen viewing.  I will start out with the Porter home outside decor, visitors and friends who came by.  Just a sampling since we had about 100 or more that came by.  The Star of David is 10 feet from point to point each straight member and made from EMT and about 40 feet off the ground and the Cross in the back ground is about the same height but it is on the lower side of the back yard and has a serious elevation drop as well.
