After a one-year hiatus due to restrictions on large gatherings, Battle Ground will once again be celebrating National Night Out on Tuesday, August 3 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Kiwanis Park located at 422 SW 2nd Ave.
The free community-building event features fun activities, information, and entertainment for the entire family. No need to feed the family before coming, dinner is also FREE! Enjoy barbecued hot dogs, prepared by Fire District 3 and Battle Ground Police Department, along with chips and drinks.
Activities include many returning family favorites: Fire District 3 activities and engine tours, SWWA Search and Rescue gear and activities, Battle Ground Police vehicles and a meet and greet with Police K-9 Charlie, games with Battle Ground Parks and Recreation and Rocksolid Teen Center, and so much more.
The Battle Ground Police Department is hosting a Bicycle Safety Rodeo for children ages 4 to 13. In addition, the department will be giving away 80 bicycle helmets. Each child participating in the Bicycle Rodeo will also be entered into a free drawing to win one of fifteen new bikes.
Prevent Together: Battle Ground Prevention Alliance will be teaming up with the DREAM Team to feature information for youth and parents on vaping, including the “Right Before Your Eyes” bedroom exhibit for parents.
As in years past, the musical entertainment will not disappoint. New this year, bringing a Scottish touch, is Gillespie Brothers Bagpipe and Drum, and back by popular demand is West Arts Academy Rock Ensemble, a talented group of student musicians playing everyone’s favorites.
