National Night Out
National Night Out
Tuesday, August 2
6 p.m.- 9 p.m.
Join us Tuesday, Aug. 2 at Happy Valley Park for National Night Out, a nationwide event that serves to build relationships between residents and promote police-community partnerships. The event also fosters connections with other first responders, including those from Clackamas Fire District #1, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office and a myriad of local organizations that promote community safety.
The event will offer an evening of summer fun that will include food, educational and interactive safety booths, and live musical entertainment.
National Night Out 2022 is brought to you by Happy Valley Parks and Recreation and sponsoring partner, Emmert International.
Food and Beverage
Food and beverage vendors will be on site with items available for purchase, including wine and beer. Picnic items are fine to bring to the event, however we ask that charcoal BBQ’s be left at home in efforts to reduce fire hazards.
National Night Out wouldn’t be complete without some summer tunes!
Get ready to dance the night away with popular cover band, Hit Machine, as they take the stage and keep the crowd rockin’ and rollin’.
Laser Light Show
This just in! We’re taking National Night Out to new heights this year with a big surprise. Get ready for a very special tribute to our first responders with a professional laser light show! Set to lively music, the lights will elevate the event and help us close out the evening with breathtaking views as we give thanks to our local heroes. Due to the nature of the display, we will extend National Night Out to approximately 10 p.m. to ensure these beautiful lights can be seen. We invite you will stay for the duration of the show and help us celebrate what we know will be a night to remember for years to come.
Bringing the community together
Getting to know your neighbors is one of the best ways to fight crime. A neighborhood that is connected is more likely to recognize suspicious activity and look out for one another. Residents are more apt to notice when something is amiss and because relationships are strong, are much more likely to speak up about a concern because communicating with neighbors is already a familiar process. National Night Out reinforces this notion and can be a great catalyst for encouraging neighbors to get acquainted. Through this annual event, neighbors and safety representatives have an opportunity to share contact information, problem solve challenges, and get to know one another better. If your HOA or neighborhood would like to sit together at the event, please email us. Our Parks and Recreation team will reserve a designated spot for your entire group!
Happy Valley Police, Clackamas County Sheriff deputies, and firefighters from Clackamas Fire District #1 will all be on site. Residents are encouraged to check out their emergency vehicles and rigs, test out the sirens, and ask lots of questions! City Councilors, City staff and members of the Traffic and Public Safety Committee will also be available to meet and engage with.
