The City of Doraville, alongside the Doraville Police Department, will be hosting a “Doraville Night Out” on Saturday, July 31 from 4:00 – 8:00 PM on Park Avenue, which will be shut down for the event. More than 35 community organizations will be present. Each one will have a booth to share information and resources they offer to the Doraville community. The first 500 children will receive a free backpack that they can take to the different booths to collect all of this information and take home for future use.
“The entire purpose of National Night Out is community-building and promoting the police-community partnerships,” said Sergeant Kari Lopez, who is helping organize the event. “Our city has so many wonderful resources that can only benefit our community and when the Doraville departments work together, we can reach so many more people. We hope that everyone comes out and joins us for this awesome event!”
The city will be fully represented by highlighting programs through the police department, library, and Parks and Recreation Department. There are two savory food trucks and one sweet truck. Additionally, there will be the opportunity to touch-a-truck, to engage in arts and crafts, a scavenger hunt, to slide down a large blow up slide, a soccer/basketball blow up, a K-9 demonstration, a dunk tank, and the opportunity to pie some city staff.
