National Night Out comes to Passyunk Square, August 17…
In our continuing effort to make our community stronger and give neighbors a chance to get to know each other, Passyunk Square Civic Association and the Columbus Square Park Advisory Council are partnering up to host a National Night Out event at Columbus Square Park (12th St. between Wharton and Reed).

National Night Out (NNO) is a nationwide event to promote neighborhood spirit and police and first responder partnerships in an effort to build a safer neighborhood. The following folks will be on hand as part of the activities:

Police Department – fingerprinting kids ages, 4-12 accompanied by an adult (you keep the fingerprints), bike registration, safety tips
Fire Department – fire prevention tips
PSCA Town Watch – find out how you can make a difference
Via Bicycles – buy a new lock for that bike
PAWS – bring your proof of rabies vaccination to get your pet registered; Vaccinations or microchips available
Wells Fargo – learn how to prevent identity theft
Local Politicians – Meet and Greet

The NNO events will take place from 5:30 to 7:30, followed by…

Lawn Chair Drive-In is bringing one of its great outdoor movie experiences to South Philly and screening Iron Giant – a family friendly movie – for all to enjoy.

Come early to get a spot in front of the screen and enjoy what the NNO program has to offer (while also meeting some of your neighbors!).

Let us know you’re coming by RSVPing to on our Facebook page. (Not required but always looks good to see a lot of folks respond ahead of time!)
