National Night Out returns to Granby next week

It is time once again for National Night Out, an annual event organized by law enforcement agencies across the nation where police officers, sheriff’s deputies and other members of the law enforcement community get together with community members to enjoy an evening of fun in a family friendly environment.

National Night Out in Grand County is being hosted by the Granby Police Department and will take place Aug. 7 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Polhamus Park in Granby.

“This year’s event will include a hot dog picnic sponsored by Mountain Parks Electric, City Market and Coca-Cola, an ice cream tent, children’s bounce house, face painting, free bike helmets for kids, pulley rides, and live music by the Irish band Claddagh,” state officials from the Granby Police. “North Colorado Med Evac will fly a helicopter around 5:45 p.m. and it will be available for viewing and education.”

The all aspects of the event are free and the entire public is invited to attend. Multiple local agencies are participating in the event including the Granby Police, Granby Recreationa Department, Grand County Sheriff’s Office, Grand Fire Protection District, Grand County EMS, Denver Health and North Colorado Med Evac.

Local officials explained the purpose of National Night Out as an evening to “build police-community partnerships to encourage neighborhood relationships and interaction with officers to make neighborhood safer, and kinder places to live.”
