Wichita’s annual Neighborhood Night Out will be held on Aug. 13. “Night Out" is a unique crime/drug prevention event that has neighbors and neighborhood associations around the city holding block parties to bring the community together. These block parties can be formal or informal.

If you register your block party, it gives police, firefighers, and other city officials the opportunity to stop by and introduce themselves to the neighborhood. Register your block party by July 29 if you want to request barricades or a neighborhood park free of charge by calling 316-352-4879. Otherwise, the deadline to register your event is Aug. 5. Registration online at www.wichita.gov/nno.

There is a limited number of available barricades this year, so act fast to get them! For more questions call 316-268-4165.
