Fire Chief Gary Faucett and Police Chief Randy Celori compete in a hula hoop contest at NNO in 2009.

Competing chiefs, great food and lots of fun with friends and neighbors all while supporting the Lake Stevens Family Center—what could be better than that?

National Night Out has become a favorite annual event for families in Lake Stevens and all over the country.
This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, August 3 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in downtown Lake Stevens where  Lake Stevens Family Center, the City of Lake Stevens, Lake Stevens Fire and Lake Stevens Police, along with many other community partners will be hosting an event which will help heighten the awareness of crime and drug prevention within our community.

“National Night Out generates support for, and the participation in, local anti-crime programs; strengthens neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and sends a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back,” Lake Stevens Fire District said in a statement.
The food is free as well as the entertainment, which will continue through the evening.

A fan favorite is the hula-hoop races between Lake Stevens Police Chief Randy Celori and Fire Chief Gary Faucett and the Guns and Hoses competition between Lake Stevens Police and Lake Stevens Fire.
This year there will be a raffle to win an Xbox entertainment system. The drawing will be at 8:30 p.m. and the money raised will to go support local youth programs.

Over 40 booths will be onsite including the Team Fitness Bouncy House.

Other free activities include a BBQ, Guns and Hoses - Lake Steven Police vs. Lake Stevens Fire, karaoke and dancing in the street, Race car and Harley ahow, dozens of aafety resources, demonstrations, give-a-ways, prizes, games and more.
