Tenafly will be hosting their 2nd Annual Community Night next Tuesday, September 16th from 5-8PM. The local event, which is Tenafly’s local version of “National Night Out,” proved successful last year and the town is hoping is becomes a regular tradition.
What is it?
The event, coordinated by the Tenafly Recreation and the Police Department, is part of a Community Policing initiative, which raises awareness about public safety and brings residents together. It is held in September as a sort of “welcome back” for families and students as the fall season and school year approaches.
What is there to do?
Festivities include music provided by professional DJ, local businesses providing demonstrations, giveaways and promotional activities. Community members can also meet local emergency services personnel and get an up close look at equipment used on a daily basis, such as patrol cars, emergency gear, fire trucks, ambulances, etc.
In addition to learning about the equipment, there will also be demonstrations and tutorials on basic first aid, avoiding fires, scams and thefts, as well as other safety information.
Local businesses usually set up tables and interact with the community by giving away items with their logo or business name. Food establishments will be on hand to serve delicious foods and treats.
Join the Fun!
If you live in Tenafly or even a neighboring town, feel free to enjoy the fun evening of delicious food, some rides and various demonstrations from all who take part.
The event takes place on Riveredge Road in front of the Police and Fire Stations. A rain date is scheduled for September 18th, if necessary.
