Block Party Program temporarily suspended

April 27, 2020

Due to the current situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the City of Spruce Grove is temporarily suspending the Block Party Program.

We recognize this will be disappointing news for residents who were hoping to host a block party this year; but the health and safety of our citizens is our top priority and we must follow public health orders to practise physical distancing and adhere to restrictions on gatherings.

Additionally, sharing food with others (like a potluck or barbecue) also has a significant risk of spreading the virus, and we must all do our part to keep our community healthy and well and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We are investigating alternatives that may allow for block parties to occur in a different way this year, while keeping in mind and following all public health orders and recommendations from the Government of Alberta and the chief medical officer, and details will be shared when available.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support and cooperation during this challenging time.
