The city of Kirkland invites residents and guests to attend the National Night Out Against Crime 2019 neighborhood block party, a community-building event meant to promote police-community partnerships and bolster neighborhood camaraderie.

Hosted by the Kirkland Police Department, the National Night Out (NNO) 2019 neighborhood block party takes place from 6-8 p.m. on Aug. 6 at the Kirkland Justice Center, 11750 NE 118th St.

NNO is free to attend, and includes a barbecue dinner, activities for kids, police and fire vehicle displays, touch-a-truck, tours of the Kirkland Justice Center and more. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet Kirkland police officers and firefighters, city leadership and Kirkland Police Chief Cherie Harris.

“National Night Out is such an incredible opportunity for our first responders to build relationships with the community members they serve every day,” Harris said in a press release. “Everyone is welcome, so bring your family and join us in celebrating this important annual event. Dinner is on us!”

NNO is held every year on the first Tuesday in August. This year marks the 36th year of NNO, with more than 16,000 communities participating across the United States.
