PHOTOS: Douglas Park Cooperative Night Out Block Party

Neighborhood kids get to turn on the lights on Seattle Police Officer Kip Strong's patrol car at the Douglas Park Cooperative Night Out Block Party.
Our annual neighborhood Night Out Block Party was a success. About 100 neighbors came out over the course of the evening and spent time meeting their neighbors, enjoying some food, and appreciating their community. The street was decorated with sidewalk chalk art, people roasted marshmallow in the fire pit, and connections were made among neighbors.

We hope to do at least one more neighborhood gathering at Virgil Flaim Park so if you missed the Block Party you still have more chances to come out and meet neighbors. Just keep an eye out here on the blog, on our Facebook page or on on our email list serve* for details about future gatherings.
