WeHo’ans Will Fill the Streets Next Tuesday for National Night Out.


On Tuesday of next week thousands of West Hollywood residents will gather on neighborhood streets in a show of unity against crime as the City of West Hollywood once again celebrates the annual National Night Out. Events such as block parties, barbecues and live entertainment will take place throughout the city. A complete up-to-date list of events, times, and event locations is available on the city’s website www.weho.org/nno.

“On National Night Out, our City of West Hollywood community will come together to take a united stand against crime,” said Mayor John Duran in an announcement of the event. “This event brings our neighborhoods together and gives our residents an opportunity to make new friends, socialize, meet representatives from City Hall, the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, our local L.A. County Fire Stations, and enhance neighborhood camaraderie.”

As part of the city’s National Night Out events this year, there will be a free family-friendly movie night featuring “Smurfs” at 8:15 p.m. at Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Blvd., hosted by the West Hollywood’s Recreation Services Division. Community members are invited to bring a blanket or a lawn chair and enjoy a movie under the stars.

There will be limited street closures during National Night Out; these will occur on Tuesday from 4 to 9 p.m. The closures include the cul-de-sac at Sherbourne Drive and Ashcroft Avenue, as well as closures at North San Vicente Boulevard and Ashcroft Avenue, and Ashcroft Avenue at Sherbourne Drive. North Ogden Drive will be closed to through traffic from 1120 North Ogden Drive to 1155 North Ogden Drive.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of National Night Out which began in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, law enforcement and community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and to send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized against crime. Nationwide, more than 35 million people in neighborhoods across the country gather outdoors to celebrate their unity and their successes in the fight against crime.

National Night Out 2018 participants include members of the City Council, Neighborhood Watch groups, the West Hollywood Gateway, the West Hollywood’s Recreation Services Division, the city’s Public Safety Commission, West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation, and the City’s Russian Advisory Board. Events are held in coordination with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the Los Angeles County Fire Department and City Hall.
