On Tuesday, Aug. 3, 2021, Cleveland residents are invited to turn their lights on and join Mayor Frank G. Jackson at the 37th annual Mayor’s Night Out Against Crime. This year’s event focuses on the community coming together because, “We’re All in This Together,” as we work to create safe places to live, work and play in the City of Cleveland. Mayor’s Night Out Against Crime events will occur in each of the city’s five police districts with the main event at Kerruish Park, 17212 Tarkington Ave. from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Each location will feature police and public safety vehicles, refreshments and activities for the entire family. All vendors and activities will be at least six feet apart and sanitizers are available to help protect residents and staff.
The Cleveland Department of Public Health (CDPH) will offer free vaccinations at Kerruish Park and Michael Zone Recreation Center to anyone 12 and older. Those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in order to be vaccinated. Cases of COVID-19 continue to increase across the city, especially in areas where vaccination rates are lowest. The City encourages everyone to get vaccinated.
The Mayor’s Night out against Crime is part of the annual National Night Out, a nationwide community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
