The Burbank Police Department will host its annual National Night Out event on Tuesday, Aug. 2.
Dubbed “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” this year’s event returns to Burbank’s Johnny Carson Park, located at 400 Bob Hope Drive.
Between 5:30 and 8 p.m., there will be activities for the entire family, including displays of police vehicles and specialty units, face painting, music, entertainment, food and refreshments.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to help make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.
Throughout the event, members of the Burbank police and fire departments, Burbank City Council and others will join in conversation with residents to discuss concerns, ideas and explore ways that residents and officials can work together to improve safety in Burbank neighborhoods.
If you can’t make it to the event at Johnny Carson Park, consider visiting one of the many neighborhood block parties in your area. If you can’t find one near you, consider hosting a block party.
