Annual National Night Out in South Lake Tahoe set for Aug. 2

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Everyone is invited to come enjoy the fun, information-filled evening, centered on crime prevention and awareness at the annual National Night Out.

The event will take place from 4-7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2. South Lake Tahoe Police Department, with the assistance of our state and local public safety partners, hosts the event annually to provide public safety information and educational family fun.

South Lake Tahoe Police will host the event in the TJ Maxx parking lot located at 2015 Lake Tahoe Boulevard. The department is partnering with multiple organizations from around the area. This year’s event will feature law enforcement vehicles, fire engines, informational fliers, prizes, hands-on activities, music and more.

The National Night Out is a community outreach program designed to heighten awareness of crime and substance abuse, generate support for participation in local anti-crime programs, bring a greater awareness to local community organizations and the resources they offer, and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.

“While we encourage everyone to come and celebrate National Night Out, we would also like to remind everyone of the potential for a smoky environment due to the wildfires,” said the city of South Lake Tahoe in a news release. “We’re looking forward to having community members join us for this evening in South Lake Tahoe.”
