Police National Night Out slated for Aug. 1
The event features police cars, bike rodeo and access to the swimming pool.
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.
