The Borough of Avalon will be hosting a National Night Out event on Tuesday, August 1st from 6:00-8:00pm.  The event will be held in the parking lot adjacent to Avalon Community Hall at 30th Street and the beach.  Many organizations from Avalon and Cape May County will be in attendance with fun and educational free activities for the entire family.

There will be many police, fire, lifeguard, public works, and public safety vehicles and equipment staged on the lot for children to explore and learn more about safety and security.  Free mechanical rides, games, and an inflatable obstacle course will be available for children to experience.  The Avalon Department of Recreation will supply free hot dogs, and free refreshing treats will be available from local merchant Sundae Best, a longtime supporter of National Night Out in Avalon.

Local band “Loud ‘N Klear” will provide the soundtrack for National Night Out playing various pop, rock, and party hits.  There will be other participating agencies including the Avalon Free Public Library, the Avalon History Center, and the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, among others.  Information on safety programs and community events will be available during the event.

After National Night Out, guests are invited to the 30th Street beach (you’re gonna need a bigger boat) to see Avalon’s Big Beach Movie, “Jaws”, at dusk.
