Quick background: we've been throwing a Bay 2 Breakers block party going on 5 years, and it has been growing year over year. Our first year was 25 peple, and we are now anticipating over 200! I say "Block Party" because it is the last place to hang out, dance, grab drinks, people watch, etc. before entering heavily regulated Golden Gate Park. We sell tickets but generate a ton of walk-up because of the prime location. We have police barricades & private security to ensure smooth-sailing; DJs blasting for a few hours; all-you-can-drink-and-eat; and an enclosed area on the street to ensure safety (I can send images & video t/ Facebook).
As the party gets bigger, it is taking more time to plan. The high growth of people YOY = more expenditures on our end & organizational structure needed. Planning earlier & preparing to prevent unknowns is vital to ensuring a great time for everyone.
