Many neighborhoods in Minden will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from police, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities, and anti-crime and anti-drug rallies.
Those interested in hosting block parties may register in-person at Minden City Hall, over the phone by dialing (318) 377-2144, or online at www.mindenusa.com. Registration opens on Friday, September 22, 2023 and runs through 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 13, 2023.
