Alta to hold 6th annual National Night Out

Friday, July 21, 2017

Alta will be hosting their Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 1st from 1 p.m. to 8 at the Alta City Park/Football Field.

National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen communication by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement agencies.

The goal is to heighten crime-prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and most importantly, send a message to let neighborhoods know they are organized and fighting back.

It’s also the perfect opportunity to get to know the neighbors around you even better.

The event is held so citizens of Alta can meet local emergency management personnel: Alta Fire Department, B.V. County Sheriff’s Department, BVRMC Ambulance Crew, BV County Emergency Management Personnel, Life Flight Helicopter and more will be on hand to visit, show off their equipment and answer any questions you may have.

Also join them for free food, free entertainment, and free games including dunk tank, inflatables, face painting and more.

There will be free public admission from 1-5p.m.; Free games from 5-6 p.m. (inflatables until 8 p.m.); free food served from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. or until gone; free snow cones and popcorn; free prizes for games; Classic Car Show and Stock Car Show from 5-8 p.m.; “Midnight Entertainment” with Kirk Langer from 5-8 p.m.; several civic groups and organizations to give you information; door prize drawings at 7:00 p.m. from several local business (must be present to win); and Citizen of the Year will be announced.
