August 2nd Is National Night Out, Register Your Block To Celebrate

The annual  2011 Night Out, a national Crime Prevention event, is happening on August 2nd.  This year's theme is "Celebrating Crime Free Neighborhoods."

Neighborhoods across the country will close off their streets and neighbors will mingle with eachother all in the name of creating safer neighborhoods against crime.

The Seattle Police Deparment information says about this special block party, with over 1200 Seattle neighborhoods participating last year :

Night Out is a fun event to meet your neighbors, talk about crime prevention and Block Watch efforts, and mainly just have a great time with food, music, games - whatever you want. The creativity we've seen of what neighborhoods come up with is amazing. Some gatherings are just a few households; others expand into large block parties. It designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, increase neighborhood support in anti-crime efforts, and unite communities."

Last year, many streets in Laurelhurst got together to celebrate the event.
