It's Time to Celebrate Community During National Night Out 2009 ! The City of Berkeley community is participating in the 26th annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 4, 2009. What had started many years ago as a unique crime and drug prevention event has evolved in the City of Berkeley into a celebration of community.
Last year's National Night Out involved community members, law enforcement, fire personnel, community groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and Canada. In all, over 37 million people participated in National Night Out 2008.
We are encouraging community members to participate. You need not be an organized group to join in the celebration. In the past, groups have hosted BBQ's, pot lucks, picnics, ice cream/dessert socials, kids parades, neighborhood clean-ups and music performances. Members of a diversity of City of Berkeley departments visit celebrations throughout the city that night.
