What is Neighbour Day?Neighbour Day 2018

The City of Grande Prairie understands the importance of building better relationships with the people who live around us. In celebration of neighbours and community, we will host the second annual Neighbour Day on Saturday, September 15, 2018.

“The idea is to meet neighbours, make new friends and have fun in your community.” says Patricia Millward, Neighbourhood Association Coordinator, “Creating a connected community fosters a sense of belonging and well being by celebrating the very people we live next door to.”

How can you celebrate Neighbour Day?

There are many ways for you to connect with your neighbours and celebrate the vibrancy of your community. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Host a Potluck
  • Have a neighbourhood picnic at a local park
  • Host afternoon tea in your backyard NA Block Party
  • Parade of lawn parties
  • Hold a sidewalk chalk drawing challenge or set up a lemonade stand
  • Help your neighbour with their fall cleaning
  • Go out and say hello to a neighbour you haven't met yet
  • Be creative in your own way to celebrate community spirit

Check in with your local Neighbourhood Association (NA) to see if they are hosting an event. Like your NA Facebook Page to stay informed.
