Cleveland community events include Saturday Night Dance, National Night August 2 – Salisbury Post
CLEVELAND — City officials recently announced plans to celebrate National Night Out, an event taking place in communities across the country that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.
Cleveland will also host Dancing on Depot Street on Saturday night.
Residents can walk out to join local leaders and police on Aug. 2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Cleveland Park, 300 Clement St.
Food and drink will be provided and there will be games and activities, but the main goal is for community members and first responders to get to know each other through positive interactions. Residents will have the chance to speak with first responders and ask questions about the daily work of police and firefighters.
Participating departments include the Cleveland Police Department, Cleveland Community Fire Department, Scottish-Irish Fire Department and Woodleaf Fire Department.
Community members are encouraged to take the opportunity to build new conversations and relationships through this event.
The national motto for the event in 2022 is: “Together, we make communities safer and more welcoming to live and work in”.
Dancing on Depot Street also returns Saturday at 6:30 p.m. The monthly event also includes a concert and food trucks. Six vendors will participate: Lil Donut Express, Kool Kat Ice Cream, Sweet Southern Fried, Motzarella’s, Chizacos and Tobo’s.
Red Dirt Revival, a “family” country band from Alamance, will perform.
The event is free and visitors are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs for the festivities.
