Rockin’ it out with Night Out

Taking full advantage of an opportunity to build community and create safer neighborhoods, people took to the streets tonight to renew acquaintances and meet neighbors for the first time during National Night Out.

Greenwoodstock, one of the bigger events in the area, drew a steady crowd of people who played in the park…

and listened to three bands…

as they munched on grilled pizza margherita.

Here’s video of the event, featuring the Bubble Man and Jeff Fielder and Black Market, as well as shots of the the pizza. Mmmmmm, pizza….

Send in your pictures and we’ll post the best here.

Andy sent us this photo from 68th and Greenwood Avenue North, where Mayor Mike McGinn stopped in for the festivities, as did the Engine 21 firefighters, who are new neighbors.


Mayor Mike McGinn snapped this picture and posted it online.

Here’s a picture from Tom on 2nd Avenue, NW, where it looks like there was food aplenty for the 40 people and six canines attending.

Dan P. sent in this photo of the scene at 89th and Linden where more than 50 people showed up and they had a badminton net stretched across the street:

Here’s a sharp pic from Christy taken on 79th between Linden and Fremont avenues.
