What do you think of when you imagine a block party? I'll bet it's like those 90s movies, with a ton of food, music, and dance battles, right?\nThe tradition of block parties stretches all the way to the 70s, when urban communities in Manhattan and Brooklyn took over the streets to celebrate their culture. Despite being known as a party town, the block party never took off in Montreal like it did in New York.\nTo remedy that terrible truth, Village au Pied-du-Courant has teamed up with Chocolate Jungle - 90s Jam to bring you the biggest and wildest Brooklyn Block Party Montreal has ever seen!\nBy now, you should know all about Village au Pied-du-Courant but if you don't, we've got you covered. The project that has been around since 2014 is one of Montreal's top summer attractions.\nThe Village has reinvented an otherwise drab part of Montreal along the former industrial docks. Renovated every summer, the Village is described as an "urban living lab" that is "dynamic in nature," according to its website.\nView this post on Instagram Août... déjà ?! 📷: @cannellewo A post shared by Village au Pied-du-Courant (@piedducourant) on Aug 3, 2018 at 6:55am PDT\nThe Village hosts incredible special events all summer and their Brooklyn Block Party is set to be one of the biggest ones of the year!\nView this post on Instagram Un ciel dans notre palette de couleurs 🍭 A post shared by Village au Pied-du-Courant (@piedducourant) on Jul 22, 2018 at 8:40am PDT\nFor one day only, this FREE event will take over the Village for an all-day and night celebration of hip-hop culture, Caribbean food and dance.\nREAD ALSO: This Is The Last Year You Can Camp In A Giant Urban Tent In Montreal's Old Port\nThe festivities begin at 5 PM with dance battles from local youth groups out of Montreal.
