In the past, the Woodinville Police Department has held a centralized event in the downtown business area.
This year on August 2, the plan is to go back to a "grass root" design, which encourages neighbors to host a gathering within their own neighborhoods.
This is designed to increase neighborhood support, heighten crime prevention awareness and bring neighbors together.
On Tuesday, August 2, neighborhoods throughout Bothell are being invited to join the Bothell Police Department in celebrating National Night Out in front of the police station (18410 101st Ave. NE in downtown Bothell) from 6 to 9 p.m.
There will be crime and fire prevention information, children ID program, along with family resource booths, face painting, activities for children.
This year’s event will also feature live music by Tweety and The Tom-Cats who play a blend of rock, blues, jump swing and jazz.
Anyone interested in participating in this year’s event is asked to contact Sergeant Clint Beck at (425) 487-5102 or Officer Steve Kerzman at (425) 487-5143.
