Night Out is Tuesday night; Where are the parties?

Get to know your neighbors and build community

The annual Night Out, an event intended to build community through neighbor familiarity and thus cut down on crime is set for Tuesday night Aug. 5 in neighborhoods all across Seattle. It's also a chance to help people become more familiar with emergency procedures and measures in their area.

As the Night Out event page from Seattle Police puts it:

Night Out Against Crime is an opportunity for individual neighborhoods to renew their commitment to the following:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
  • Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Most neighborhood gatherings are potluck events with everyone bringing something to share as some also feature local musical performances, hot dog and hamburger grilling and a lot of conversation.

Some lucky events get a visit from Seattle Police officers who show up to offer crime prevention advice. Others might see a visit from the Seattle Fire Department who come to show off their equipment and get to know people in the area.
