National Night Out Block Party teaches crime prevention at Providence
Free event at Knickerbocker Park on Aug. 5
Kids and adults alike will get the chance of living out their childhood dreams of being a police officer or firefighter at the third annual free National Night Out Block Party at Providence on Tuesday, Aug. 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Knickerbocker Park in the Providence Master Planned Community. The event will feature emergency response vehicles and officers, who will answer questions and give demonstrations.
The National Night Out Block Party includes exhibits and information from participants, which include the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s (Metro) Northwest Area Command and Traffic Bureau; Las Vegas Fire and Rescue; Nevada Department of Public Safety; FBI Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association; Trauma Intervention Program; Nevada Security Association and Zero Fatalities.
“As part of our ongoing effort to let our local heroes know how much we appreciate them, we will have a Gratitude Tent where participants can thank the first responders, including the Metro Northwest Area Command, which will receive a banner” said Jenna Bell, lifestyle director at the Providence Master Homeowners Association (PMHA). “We also will be collecting donations to purchase a park bench for Huckleberry Park in memoriam of Officer Soldo, who was a resident of Providence.”
The event features many children’s activities, such as a giant obstacle course and slide, video games from Game Truck of Las Vegas, and park amenities. Amazing Clowns will provide a 1950’s fire engine, and guests can enjoy a large-scale version of the classic “Red Light – Green Light” game. P.D., the lovable Providence dog mascot, also will be on hand to greet everyone.
Knickerbocker Park, located at 10695 Dorrell Lane, north of the I-215 Beltway and Hualapai Way, includes a softball field and multi-use event field for soccer and volleyball. Participation will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Additionally the park has play areas for 2 to 5-year-olds and 5 to 12-year-olds, swing sets, a dog park with small and large dog areas, a splash pad, a jogging path with exercise stations, and picnic areas.
The Providence Master Homeowners Association will share information about the P.A.R.T. Campaign – Prevent Any Road Tragedy – a local traffic safety campaign aimed at reducing the number of fatalities and injuries on community roadways and thoroughfares.
The National Night Out Block Party at Providence is presented by the Providence Master Homeowners Association and Providence Master Planned Community, and is one of the few such events open to the public in northwest Las Vegas. For information, call the PMHA at (702) 216-2020.
