National Night Out was a hit again this year.
More than 30 children, adults and dogs started the Aug. 2 evening at Dekum Court. They barbecued, watched Dragon Theater’s Snow Queen and her Sister, indulged in balloons and bubble machines, and decorated their vehicles.
They traversed the 1½ miles to Fernhill Park – escorted by motorcycle police officers – astride their bikes, trikes, wagons, skates, scooters and skate boards. At the park, they were greeted by Collage’s art activities, a balloon artist, a henna artist, more than 600 additional neighbors, and the Wanderlust Circus accompanied by the band Three for Silver.
Thanks to National Night Out sponsors New Seasons, Safeway and Umpqua Bank, and partners Home Forward Dekum Court Community and Trash for Peace. Thanks for another successful series of five Concerts in the Park go to the Fernhill Concert Committee: Robert Bowles, Jim & Robin Johnson, Chris Lopez, Anne Rothert and Katie Ugolini.
