Night Out parties - fun, food, fire engines and talking to neighbors

Roads were closed so neighbors could meet
and children could play on National Night Out

The annual Night Out Against Crime block parties offer a lot to participants.

This little guy got to drive a fire truck
and his dad took pictures to prove it!
N 152nd and Densmore

At their core, the simple goal is for neighbors to meet each other. People who know each other are more likely to know when something is wrong on the street and more likely to tell the police their suspicions.

For one night, kids can play safely in the street
and neighbors talk to each other
N 161st and Stone

All that is usually required of neighbors is to bring a potluck dish, show up, eat, and talk to people.

Not everyone blocked off the street.
A front yard and driveway will do just as well.
N 160th and Ashworth

Those who register their parties get visits from local leaders.

Neighbors are talking to each other -
and to the City Manager and Shoreline Police Chief
You never know who you'll meet at a NNO party
NE 158th and 11th

Steven H. Robinson got to half a dozen block parties Tuesday evening and managed to find a fire engine and crew, a city councilmember, a school board director, the city manager, chief of police, and superintendent of public schools!
