On Tuesday, August 2, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., the Sea Isle City Police Department (SICPD) will host a National Night Out celebration at the Excursion Park Band Shell, located at JFK Boulevard and the Promenade. As is the case in towns and cities throughout the country, the focus of Sea Isle’s National Night Out is to increase awareness for important police programs, such as drug prevention, avoiding juvenile alcohol use, and other anti-crime efforts.
Sea Isle City’s National Night Out will feature complementary snacks and other give-aways, as well as a variety of free activities, including face painters, an inflatable obstacle course, a photo booth, games, live music and other family fun. There will also be a dunk tank, which will raise funds for Mayor Desiderio’s 2016 Holiday Toy and Food Drive.
Families will also enjoy a variety of interactive law enforcement and safety displays, manned by representatives from Sea Isle City’s Fire Department, Ambulance Corps and Beach Patrol, as well as the Cape May County’s Sheriff’s Office, Prosecutor’s Office and S.W.A.T. Team. At the SICPD table, officers will allow people to try-on special goggles that show how severely alcohol impairs basic functions.
Afterwards, everyone can settle-in for a free showing of the hit Disney movie Descendants, which will begin at dusk at Excursion Park. Families are reminded to bring folding chairs or beach blankets to recline on the park’s lawn during the movie.
“National Night Out is always a wonderful opportunity to entertain and educate families,” said SICPD Captain Thomas McQuillen, event organizer. “We are looking forward to seeing everyone at Excursion Park for a fun-filled evening on August 2 – so mark your calendars now.”
