National Night Out tonight in Allan Yorke Park

National Night Out, the crime and drug prevention awareness campaign, will take place in Allan Yorke Park tonight.

A caravan of Bonney Lake police and East Pierce Fire and Rescue personnel will arrive by caravan at 6:30 p.m. and festivities will continue through 9 p.m. Children of all ages will be able to explore the various emergency vehicles on display in the park, or talk to policemen, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, city leaders and workers about their jobs.

Airlift NorthWest will make an appearance and Washington State Patrol’s bomb disposal unit will host a demonstration. Crafts, clowns, and face painting by Panther cheerleaders will round out children’s activities. Bonney Lake police will hand out gift bags containing items recreational and educational.

The family animated feature “Escape From Planet Earth” will be presented at dusk as part of Friday Night Flix, weather permitting.
