With the Fourth of July around the corner, get your party planning in gear. Each summer, Plymouth resident Kristi Thompson’s neighborhood throws a big gathering to celebrate the holiday. Here’s her advice on how to make your party a hit.

Summer is a great opportunity for everyone to get together and socialize in the warmer weather. But communication is key when planning with so many people. Thompson suggests creating an online group or email to keep everyone in the loop.

No party is complete without food! Thompson’s neighborhood opts for classic picnic fare with a barbeque grill available. For dessert, a neighbor donates ice cream for the kids to enjoy.

Last but not least, have fun! This party kicks off with a parade where neighborhood kids decorate their bikes and head to the community pool. The pool party incorporates a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy.
