Video of Ranelagh Street Party for European Neighbour's Day

Ever heard of that US thing, a 'block party'? 
That's when people who live in an area get together for a BBQ or something for a day to get to know each other. 
Well, May 24th was European Neighbour's Day and some goodly citizen organised a Street Party for Ranelagh (we don't have blocks in Ireland). 
I could see that people setup games or food stalls outside their homes, wore namebadges with their house number and went out to chat to each other. 
What a good idea! 
How much more secure and happier a place is when you actually KNOW someone. Here's my vote for more street parties (especially if we get more of the weather we had today).
