Westfield National Night Out 2023

Hosted by the Westfield Police Department, the Westfield Chapter of National Night Out provides an opportunity to learn more about how you can help our first responders do their jobs more efficiently and effectively. Learn how to identify and report criminal activity. Help continue to keep our community safe by creating a deeper bond with our local police. But there is so much more to National Night Out than that.

In addition to community outreach and education, guests can listen to music while noshing on great food, watch live demos, try their hand at the rock climbing wall, and get their faces painted. Come see what equipment firefighters, police, and EMTs use on a daily basis. The little ones can roam around the bouncy house obstacle course. There’s even a dunk tank and a photo booth. This event is meant to strengthen the bond between our first responders and the rest of the community so that Westfield remains a safe and secure community in which to live. I hope to see you there.

Westfield Area Y Carnival Games

Before the National Night Out festivities commence, you might want to bring the kids to Quimby Street. Westfield Area Y hosts free carnival games for the public from 10 am to 1 pm. Members of the Y’s teen leadership program man the booths for these fun games as part of their learning experience. This helps them to positively interact with the community while strengthening their communication skills and boosting their creativity.

Sweet Sounds Downtown Musical Festival

Also, don’t forget about the Sweet Sounds Downtown Music Festival. It also takes place on Tuesday night from 7 pm to 9 pm. If you get too caught up in the National Night Out festivities to attend the August 1st Sweet Sounds concerts, that’s OK. New concerts take place every Tuesday evening through the end of August. You can catch the next one.
