Next Tuesday August 6th is the annual “Night Out Block Party” event which is held to increase awareness of neighborhood crime prevention. This event is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors, welcome in new ones, and talk about crime prevention that you and your neighbors can participate in. The theme this year is “Celebrating Crime Free Neighborhoods.”
While talking about crime prevention is the reason for this event, the city of Seattle encourages people to not only meet your neighbors but also have BBQ’s, play games, and enjoy this festive evening. If you would like to register your block party with the city of Seattle you can due so on their website here. Last year there were more than 1300 registered block parties going on throughout the city of Seattle.
