Year after year, one of the bigger block parties in Hoboken takes place in the First Ward.

From 3pm-12am tomorrow, September 15th, there will be ethnic foods, children’s games, arts & crafts, music and dancing. The party is located on Garden Street (between 2nd & 3rd). In case it rains, it will be held Sunday, Sept. 16. Costs $10 bucks to get in, or $5 with membership. Kids under 12 enjoy the festivities gratis.

It features recipes that are sure to make you drool. Monies collected from the sale will be “donated” to the FWBA Scholarship Fund. Shell out $12 to pick it up there, or buy it online here.

Membership to the First Ward Block Association is open to anyone who lives on Willow to Bloom (between 1st & 4th). Want more info? Check out the FWBA website here, send email to fwbahoboken@yahoo.com, or call Augusta Przygoda at 201-420-7557.

This looks like a lot of fun. How do you get permission for a block party?

Sorry about that. While most of the membership comes from the geographical area described, anyone from the First Ward can join. Moreover, anyone willing to shell out $10 for food and drink can attend the party. I’ll ask 411 to amend the above text.

That was going to be my question. I live in the first ward and steps from 1st street however according to that description I would not be allowed to join the association. Can someone clarify this?
