Slideshow: National Night Out...Were You There?

"When residents on a block know each other, the neighborhood and the community is safer and stronger."

Although the goal of National Night Out is to raise public safety awareness in communities, residents, businesses and public safety officials in Belmont took the annual event to a new level Tuesday night.

From sidewalk chalk contests and barbeque dinners to home safety demonstrations and tours of the police mobile command unit, the folks in Belmont demonstrated their community spirit and their commitment to forming a strong partnership with police, fire and city departments.

Did you attend a National Night Out event in your neighborhood? Tell us about it in the comment section below.

Which neighborhood are you in? Each group starts organizing early in the year and most have email groups that you can join.

Congratulations, Belmont! I was out of town, but it appears that it was a great event. I'm sorry I missed it, but it looks like a lot of you didn't! Thanks to all who organized this: The police and fire, the city, merchants, and the neighborhood associations. Well done! George

Thanks for stopping by at Alexander Park - this has definitely become a favorite annual event for the Sterling Downs Neighborhood Association! Please note that a list of all the Neighborhood and Homeowner Associations in Belmont are listed on the city's website at http://www.belmont.gov/subContent.asp?CatID=240000306.
