Diamond Jubilee parties will be taking place all round Finsbury Park this weekend - but the council wants you to keep things tidy.
Road closures have been agreed for small parties with celebrations reaching all parts of Haringey.
The council is asking that organisers be sure to clean up after their party as we don't want the streets to be awash with litter, bunting and food waste.
Cllr Nilgun Canver, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: "It's wonderful that so many communities are holding street parties and that the borough will be full of fun marking the Diamond Jubilee. The council has waived the road closure fees for these parties to make it easier for everyone to participate but we do ask that streets are cleaned up afterwards, where possible."
As well as community parties, the council is holding a street party across from the Civic Centre on Saturday afternoon.
