DUNKIRK — The City of Dunkirk’s National Night Out Committee has moved the date of its annual National Night Out Celebration this year due to COVID-19.
Officials say Night Out is now slated to happen on Tuesday, Aug. 25 with an alternate date for Tuesday, Sept. 1. National Night Out is traditionally on the first Tuesday in August.
The Committee says they do not want to cancel the program but in order to keep everyone safe they will require that masks be worn by everyone in attendance and that social distancing is practiced. They will have safety precautions in place and theyt will separate the picnic tables around Washington Park so there is distance between citizens and families during the evening and they will keep them separated for the usual Movie that they end the night with.
Police Officers and Firefighters will be on location and they will interact in a safe way with all that attend.
The Night Out Committee wants to thank all people that come out for the event every year and we look forward to seeing all of you again this year and ask everyone to help them have a safe event.
