Every September there's a street party organised by the people who live in my neighbourhood. It's a great example of how community spirit can make something enjoyable for everyone happen effectively, smoothly, without friction and with unstinting cooperation, all tasks voluntarily undertaken. Good food cooked and served, children's activities. raffles, dog show, magic, film show, dancing, and always music, one or more bands always invited to perform.

This year my friend, the fabulosa Brazilian/English singer Nina Miranda and her two marvellous musicians: Antony Elvin (guitar & voice) Oli Savill (percussion) performed in the afternoon and evening on the blue-canopied stage. It was pure joy to be there.

Some small animals were brought for children to get to know and to hold.

Yes, it's a really lovely annual event for everyone participating and visiting. Wish you and your wife could come over next time!

It looks like a 'well-mannered' event. Great!

Oh my goodness, this party sight looks so adorable. It seems like everyone enjoyed it to the fullest. At the seaside event venues I too would be attending an annual dance event. Would love to take my fiancé too with me so that we both can have a crazy evening filled with massive entertainment on the beach.
