Lake Oswego National Night Out is a city-wide event with each neighborhood celebrating in their own way. The city encourages everyone to get out and meet their neighbors and the best way to do that is to have a party!
This year is the 5th Annual National Night Out, and Lake Oswego neighborhoods are celebrating with a good, old-fashioned block party.
Happening on the first Tuesday in August, this year, the event is Tuesday, August 3rd, from 5-9pm. Some neighborhoods will have shorter meeting times, depending on where you live. It's a night when neighborhoods all across the city come together for barbeques, potlucks, and ice cream socials.
To promote this event, the City encourages neighbors to have a block party. Take this opportunity to get to know your neighbors, have some fun, meet first responders, and learn more about public safety in your neighborhood. Know who lives next door to you and support each other. The best way is to meet and greet and find out more about your neighborhood.
The City of Lake Oswego encourages all of their residents to get out and celebrate your neighborhood and neighbors. In the map above, the neighborhood block parties are starred, with visits from the Police and Fire department. Some of the neighborhood parties will receive a visit by a fire truck or police squad car, maybe even a K9! To make it even better, these fire fighters and police officers will come bearing gifts!
In my neighborhood, we are bringing our blankets and chairs to the local park, having a picnic dinner and play games. ,Our Neighborhood Administration is hosting an ice cream social too.
