SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii -- Another fun-filled evening is planned for families at Island Palm Communities' second National Night Out celebration, Oct. 10 at the Aliamanu Community Center.
The event is free, and festivities kick off with a parade of exhibitors at 4 p.m.; it ends with a movie on the lawn at 6:30 p.m., so bring your chairs and blankets.
National Night Out has been held across the country for 30 years to heighten safety awareness, to promote police-community partnerships and crime prevention, and to bring communities together.
Exciting exhibits, demonstrations and activities promoting safety at home and throughout communities will be presented by Island Palm Communities, U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii and its Directorate of Emergency Services.
Kids are encouraged to ride their bikes to the event to test their skills navigating a cool bike rodeo course, and parents can get their keiki fingerprinted and introduce them to McGruff the Crime Dog, Eddie the Eagle and Bobber the water safety dog.
All can also learn about the Neighborhood Watch Program and take part in activities presented by the U.S. Coast Guard, the Federal Fire Department, Military Police and the Army's K-9 Unit.
Live entertainment by members of the Aliamanu Military Reservation Teen Center and SKIES programs, face painting, balloon twisting and inflatable bounce houses also will add to the fun.
Join IPC for a great evening with family, friends and neighbors.
