Mem­bers of the Bella Vista Po­lice De­part­ment wel­come the public to the an­nual Na­tional Night Out, from 5 to 8 p.m. Tues­day, Aug. 1, at Kings­dale Pav­il­ion.

Hang out with your lo­cal po­lice of­fi­cers and en­joy free food, mu­sic, a drunk driv­ing sim­u­la­tor, an in­ter­est­ing ev­i­dence ta­ble and more. Kids (and adults, too) will have the op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore a po­lice car — lights, sirens and all — and the An­i­mal Con­trol truck. A mist­ing tent will be pro­vided by the Ken­drick Fincher Hy­dra­tion Foun­da­tion.

Bring your bikes and hel­mets from home for the GPP Cycling bike rodeo. Pro bike me­chan­ics will be avail­able for bike safety checks and hel­met fits, for kids and adults. Come test your abil­i­ties on a bike skills ob­sta­cle course and learn about bike safety.

New this year, the Bella Vista Prop­erty Own­ers As­so­ci­a­tion will al­low the public ad­mis­sion to the Kings­dale Pool from 5 to 8 p.m. for only $1.

This year’s event will be the first for newly named chief of po­lice James Graves.
