The City of Seattle has been a part of a national event that celebrates neighborhoods and keeping them safe. It is called Nights Out and is “designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, increase neighborhood support in anti-crime efforts, and unite our communities.” What does that mean in Seattle? It is getting a chance to have a block party of your own making!
Each year, on August 5th, neighbors take over their block (including the street) and enjoy a night of music, food, and fun with each other. Each event is unique to a neighborhood or a block so each event is different. If you are curious about your neighborhood or your neighbors, definitely visit this map and find an event near you!
