PARADISE, Calif. - More than one hundred neighbors in Paradise came to Bille Park for the first Zone 4 block party.

Zone 4's block captain Angela Alford said the party was meant to be a celebration of survival and overcoming tragedy.

The party was also a way for neighbors to talk about the rebuilding process and catch up with one another.

Alford said, "It's my zone residents that are coming back ... to reunite after this fire, you know, seeing people that they haven't seen in nine months and just getting back together and bonding."

The block party featured live music, face painting, and a potluck.
