SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — A fun-filled evening is planned for families at the annual National Night Out celebration to be held on August 7 beginning at 4:30 p.m. at Island Palm Communities Kaena Community Center on Schofield Barracks.

The festivities kick off with a Super-hero Parade followed by exciting safety-themed activities for the whole family and a movie on the lawn at 7 p.m.
Families should bring chairs and blankets so they can kick back, relax and enjoy the featured film, “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Interactive exhibits, demonstrations and activities promoting safety within homes and in the community will be showcased by IPC, USAG-Hawaii’s Directorate of Emergency Services (DES), the Federal Fire Department, the Honolulu Police Department, the U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies and organizations.

NNO-Photo-2_IPCKids can ride their bikes to the event then test their skills navigating a cool bike rodeo course, and parents can get their keiki fingerprinted and introduce their little ones to McGruff the Crime Dog and Eddie the Eagle. The K-9 Unit will put on an exciting demonstration at 6 p.m., and kids will have a chance to meet the unit’s four-legged heroes.

Event-goers will enjoy complimentary pizza, cotton candy, popcorn and shave ice.  More fun can be found on a 16-foot inflatable slide and face-painting and balloon-twisting booths. Mechanical stuffed animals also will be part of the mix, giving kids of all ages a chance to ride them.

National Night Out has been held across the country for 32 years to heighten safety awareness and promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention and bring communities together.
