National Night Out slated for Tuesday in Glendale

Dozens of community events are planned for Tuesday night as part of National Night Out, a nationwide campaign to encourage neighbors to band together against crime.

About 2,000 people are expected to attend about 40 events planned throughout the city from 6 to 8 p.m., according to a city report. Some organizers plan to close off streets and incorporate diverse entertainment, such as a karaoke machine, DJs and live music.

One of the largest events is scheduled for Pacific Community Center and Park, 501 S. Pacific Ave., which will include dancing, displays on how to make neighborhoods safer and a bounce house.

An event hosted by the Glenmore Homeowners Assn. is set to close off the 1600 block of Herbert Avenue to cars and incorporate a photo booth, face painting, Ping-Pong and a live band.

The City Council cancelled its regularly-scheduled evening meeting, so council members can attend local National Night Out events.
