LAKEPORT NATIONAL NIGHT OUT AGAINST CRIME SET FOR AUGUST 2, 2016
The City of Lakeport National Night Out Against Crime will be held on Tuesday evening, August 2, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the far north end of N. Main Street, just north of 16th Street. The road will be closed on North Main Street, starting from the intersection of 16th Street and North Main Street. The road closure will be from 4:00pm-8:30pm.
This event is coordinated to increase and improve police and community partnerships in our city.
City of Lakeport Management and Staff, City Council Members, Lakeport Police Officers and Staff, Lakeport Fire Protection District, California Highway Patrol and other local safety officials will be on site to meet and greet local residents. The event will feature free hot dogs courtesy of the Lakeport Grocery Outlet and cooked by the Kiwanis Club of Lakeport. We will also have free popcorn and Sno-Cones. McGruff the Crime Dog and Chipper will be in attendance. Fill-Up the Clown will be providing entertainment and balloon sculptures.
The event will have a youth game area and bicycle decorating contest so we are asking that kids bring their bicycles to participate. Raffle prizes for kids, under 18, will include two new bicycles with helmets and two new scooters with helmets and baseball mitts. We will also have raffle prizes for adults.
This event is being funded by Lakeport Police drug asset forfeiture funds and the generous donations of supplies and prizes by numerous local businesses and organizations including: Kiwanis Club of Lakeport, Ca, Lake County News, Lakeport Grocery Outlet, Main Street Bicycles, KXBX 98.3 FM, Lake County 4H, Lake County Fair, Servpro of Lake and Mendocino County, Pak N Mail, Lakeport Cinema 5, Jeff Morin Art and Saint Mary Immaculate Catholic Parish of Lakeport.

The City is also encouraging neighborhoods to get involved in putting on their own National Night Out event next year by holding block parties in their neighborhoods. City staff will be happy to assist with planning for the 2017 National Night Out. We will have available starter kits and resource referrals to help kick start your own block party!
Last year's event was re-scheduled and eventually cancelled due to the Rocky, Jerusalem and Valley Fires, so we expect this year's event to be twice as good as in the past!
