Getting the neighbors together for a block party can be a lot of fun. Everyone gets to mingle and chat with one another, but when the night starts to wear down, it can be hard to keep kids entertained while the parents continue to hang out with one another. Consider creating a drive-in movie for the kids using your driveway and your garage door. The following guide walks you through the process of making a great drive-in movie theater for the kids in your neighborhood.
Clean the Garage Door
The first thing you will need to do is to clean the garage door. You want to be sure that the image that is projected onto the door is easy to see and scuffs can make certain images indistinguishable when the light shines on them. Create a mixture of hot water and dish detergent. Use a sponge to scrub the garage door from top to bottom, until there are no scuff marks left on it. If you cannot reach the top of the door, use a mop to get those areas clean.
Set Up a Television Projector
Rent a television projector from a audio visual rental company to use to shine the movie onto your garage door. Set up a television projector the night before you plan to show the movie. Use sidewalk chalk to make a mark on your driveway at the exact spot where the table should be placed that the projector will be resting on during the viewing. You want to be sure that the images are clear and easy for the children to see.
Ensure Sound Quality
You want to be sure that the projector is hooked to a sound system so that kids can hear the movie clearly, regardless of where their little cars or bikes are parked. Many rental companies have sound systems you can rent if you do not own one, as well. You may need to place speakers at either end of your driveway for optimal sound quality.
Designate Parking Spaces
Use the sidewalk chalk to create parking spaces in the driveway so that children can have specific places to park their cars or bikes. You want to be sure that you have enough room between the spaces so that children do not push or hit one another during the movie.
Once you have everything ready to go, the kids will be able to pull up to a parking spot and enjoy the show as soon as it starts to get dark outside. Have snacks and drinks ready for the kids to enjoy while they watch the film. This can be a great event that you could easily do once a week during the summer to ensure kids always have something to look forward to on the weekends.

A few months ago, my beloved, maternal grandmother celebrated her 80th birthday. When I was younger, she always threw me a huge birthday party at her home every year. For her 80th birthday, I planned to repay her for all of the birthday bashes she planned for me when I was a kid. The party was held in the activities building of my grandmother’s church. Because I’m not skilled at decorating for parties, I enlisted the help of professional party planners. These individuals filled the activities building with streamers, balloons, and beautiful, colorful floral arrangements. I couldn't wait to see the surprised look on my grandmother’s face when she arrived at the party venue. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of hiring professional party planners to oversee your next, joyful occasion.
