ALIAMANU MILITARY RESERVATION — Another great event packed with exciting safety-themed activities is planned at Island Palm Communities’ National Night Out celebration, set to take place on Friday, Oct. 9, at 4 p.m., here, at the community center.

The festivities kick off with a superhero parade followed by activities for the whole family and a movie on the lawn at 6:30 p.m.

Families should plan to bring chairs and blankets, so they can kick back, relax and enjoy the featured film, “Big Hero 6.”

Interactive exhibits, demonstrations and activities promoting safety within homes and in the community will be showcased by IPC, U.S. Army Garrison-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.

Kids 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 and kids will have a chance to meet the unit’s four-legged heroes.

Event-goers will enjoy complimentary pizza, cotton candy, popcorn and everyone’s favorite: shaved ice.

More fun can be found on a 16-foot inflatable slide and face-painting and balloon twisting booths. Also, mechanical stuffed animals 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.
