National Night Out is an event held in local neighborhoods throughout the nation to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, to strengthen neighborhood spirit and law enforcement-community partnerships, and send criminals a message letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. The Sheriff's Department organizes with selected local neighborhoods for block parties.
In addition to block parties the San Dimas HEROES is hosting a community family picnic at Via Verde Park between 6PM and 8PM that evening.
The City would like to remind residents that the use and ownership of fireworks is prohibited in the City of San Dimas. This includes "Safe and Sane" fireworks and emergency signal devices used as fireworks.
