The annual National Night Out community gathering was held this year, for the first time, in Waterfront Park in downtown Winslow.
The 35th annual police-public get-together on Tuesday, Aug. 7, saw attendees enjoying free Costco hot dogs, root beer floats, popcorn, and activities for all ages.
Highlights included a police obstacle course, balloon animals, resource booths and music. There was also a Touch-A-Truck area that included a police car, a Washington State Patrol bomb truck, an FBI crime scene vehicle, a police training vehicle and a tow truck, as well as police and U.S. Coast Guard boats to explore at the nearby dock.
National Night Out takes place annually on the first Tuesday in August to heighten awareness and strengthen local anti-crime efforts, and to build police-community relationships.
