Aug 01, 2010 by Lisa Newton

National Night Out (“NNO”), is a national campaign whose mission is to assist U.S. cities united in their pledge to fight crime, drugs and violence, and to promote public safety and neighborhood unity.

National Night Out is celebrated on the first Tuesday in August each year, which is Tuesday, August 3rd.

In Los Angeles, National Night Out will be celebrated in different locations and in a variety of ways:

    Downtown’s National Night Out will be held in Chinatown, with music, boxing, a carnival, a Police Escorted Bicycle Tour, and an Iron Chef Competition featuring chefs from Wurstküche, Royal Claytons, and Hop Woo competing for the Top Chef title.

    In West Hollywood, eight Neighborhood Watch groups and the City’s Recreation Services Division are planning a variety of events that include block parties with BBQ’s, live musical entertainment, dancing acts and more.

    With this year’s theme of bicycle theft prevention and bike safety, the Santa Monica’s NNO will feature an old fashioned block party on Olympic Drive in front of the Public Safety Facility. With a Mini Bike Rodeo for Kids, Bike Safety Inspections, a bike Valet, and Hot Dogs, Pizza, Beverages, and Giveaway Items, who could resist?

These are only a snippet of the all of the different National Night Outs in Los Angeles.

If you’re looking for one near you, the easiest way to find it is to Google the name of your town along with National Night Out.

To be sure, there’s no doubt you’ll find the NNO for a city near you, and to have a great time attending the festivities.
