Celebrate National Night Out tonight!

August 4, 2009

NOTE: These are party locations for 2009. I’ll try to get a list for this year up soon!

Tonight is the 26th annual National Night Out celebration, a nationwide event designed to foster safer cities and neighborhood-police relationships and build community overall. The first Tuesday of every August (except in Texas, where it’s in October because August is too hot!), neighborhoods are encouraged to throw big block parties to get people out and active. Oakland has been participating in National Night Out for years, and this year residents are hosting over 420 parties across the city.

Unfortunately the City didn’t post the complete list of celebrations this year, but here’s a partial list—and I’m sure if there’s one in your neighborhood, it will be pretty easy to spot. Unless otherwise specified, the parties run from 7 pm to 9 pm. I added neighborhood names to try to help people find their closest parties. Since these were originally organized by police beat, I might have clumped some with the wrong neighborhoods or otherwise gotten it wrong—if so, sorry! And the notable absence of parties in places like Rockridge is not because there aren’t any—there are lots!—but because I don’t have the list. (Most of this list came from Jean Quan’s newsletter so it’s heavily District 4.) Feel free to add others in the comments or email me and I’ll put them in.
