Jim Schneider, left, listens to a story by code enforcement supervisor Joe Bockman at last year’s Janan Drive neighborhood National Night Out party. There were 41 neighborhood parties last year across the city.

The 36th National Night Out will be held Aug. 6 at Everett Park from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

The event aims to celebrate crime-free neighborhoods and getting to know law enforcement officers.

A year ago, there were more than 40 neighborhood parties around Bellevue, and Roger Cox, community relations coordinator for Bellevue Police Department, said he expects about the same number this year.

Those without neighborhood parties can join the Everett Park celebration. There will be law enforcement stations, bounce houses, free food and booths from businesses across the city.

Everett Park is located along Betz Road north of Harlan Drive and south of Bellevue University.

BPD is accepting requests to sign up for parties until Aug. 1.
