It is time to once again start planning our National Night Out Against Crime event. This Block Party Guide (PDF) has been prepared to give you ideas and helpful tips as you plan your event.
West Valley City residents have been participating in National Night Out since its creation. More that 50 events are held in the City annual as part of the program. Registered neighborhood groups that register with the city will potentially have visits from Police, Fire, and City Council members. They will also be placed in a drawing to potentially have visits made by McGruff the Crime Dog and the National Night Out Knight.
Block parties are made up of a wide range of creativity ranging from simple neighborhood meetings to large neighborhood dinners with live entertainment. Some groups choose to close a neighborhood street while others hold events at city parks or in a neighbor’s yard. It does not require a large amount of money to make an event a success; many groups have pot-luck events where everyone in the neighborhood brings a favorite dish to share.
Join us this year as we celebrate West Valley City neighborhoods! Together, we can make a difference!
