South Lake Tahoe participating in National Night Out

Communities across the country will join in participating in National Night Out Tuesday, and South Lake Tahoe institutions are inviting the public to come out and participate in local festivities.

Local governments, including the city and El Dorado County, and others are teaming up to host the South Lake Tahoe National Night Out, which serves as an annual community-building campaign promoting police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie, according to a press release.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August.

The goal is to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

The South Lake Tahoe event will take place Tuesday, Aug. 1, from 4 to 8 p.m., at the Environmental Science Magnet School located at 1095 E. San Bernardino Ave. The local event is a partnership between El Dorado County, El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department, California Highway Patrol, South Lake Tahoe Police Department, Barton Health, South Tahoe Refuse and Recycling Services, California Conservation Corps and Kiwanis.

It will feature fun, food, networking and plenty of opportunities to interact with local law enforcement, first responders and others.
