“I’d like to thank Premera Blue Cross, our headline sponsor, as well as all the local businesses who donate money and supplies to make this an award winning event. Our goal is to provide a fun opportunity to raise crime and drug prevention awareness, strengthen community spirit, and get to know one another,” stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen.
Other activities include dance performances, martial arts demonstrations, public safety vehicle tours and the popular water walking balls.
Mountlake Terrace’s National Night Out event takes place thanks to donations from local businesses and sponsors as well as volunteers and participants from local agencies and organizations. “We couldn’t do this event without our wonderful sponsors and volunteers who contribute each year,” added Olsen.
