Downey will celebrate National Night Out with free family-friendly events tonight in the civic center from 5:30-9 p.m.
It is the first time Downey marks National Night Out, which is celebrated throughout the country on the first Tuesday of every August as a way to raise crime prevention awareness and strengthen community unity. (Note: our newspaper last week incorrectly stated the event was taking place Wednesday. We hope not too many people are affected.)
Downey's event will include information about crime prevention, health resources, children's activities, community information booths, City Hall tours, bicycle safety workshops, a community walk with the mayor, free food and drinks, and more.
For questions, call Jane Guzman at (562) 904-2374.
