“I always enjoy National Night Out, it’s a great way to get neighbors together, and to spread the message that Everett is a safe community not just because of the hard working men and women in Public Safety but also because we have neighbors who care about each other, who look out for each other and ultimately help keep our streets, neighborhoods and parks safe,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria Jr.
The celebration will take place on Tuesday, August 2, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Everett Recreation Center on Elm Street.
Events include a police canine demonstration, self defense demonstrations, child ID fingerprints kits, coloring contests for kids and more.
There will also be music, food and free giveaways.
Say hello to your neighbors and goodbye to crime.
