The Chicago Park District is throwing the first-ever block party at Taylor-Lauridsen Park, hosted in conjunction with a movie screening at the park.

The park district is providing food, games and a DJ for the party, billed as an "ole-fashioned community picnic."

An outdoor screening of "The Little Rascal" will follow the party, around dusk.
