Citizens of Butler will unite from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2, at Frontier Park, 5200 block of North 127th St., for the Village of Butler’s National Night Out. Butler joins other neighborhoods throughout southeastern Wisconsin and communities nationwide for the 28th Annual National Night Out; locally, the Butler is celebrating the fourth year of this community-wide event.
The free, open to the public event will begin is designed to heighten crime and drug awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships and let criminals know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
To start off the evening, residents are asked to turn on their outside lights in support of the event. Children’s activities include free arts and crafts, carnival games, rock climbing wall, inflatable rides, dressing up like a firefighter and rides in police cars and fire trucks.
Entertainment includes Michael Drake AKA “Mr Pickles”, a canine demonstration with Butler’s own Lieutenant Pergande and Officer Oden, ethnic dance groups and appearances by local celebrities and sports mascots including Smokey the Bear, the Milwaukee Admirals and Milwaukee Wave. Free hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, soda and Sno-cones are available. Age appropriate door prizes will be awarded to children and adults and the event will conclude with a community walk at 8 p.m.
The event is 100 percent funded via contributions of cash, in-kind donations and time made by local businesses, organizations and volunteers. A small committee oversees and organizes the event that draws nearly 1,000 people each year.
Nationally, National Night Out involves over 10,000 communities from all 50 States, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. Over 34 million people are expected to participate in “America’s Night Out Against Crime.”
