National Night Out makes for a fun time for families

A good crowd filled LaGrande Park Tuesday evening, August 4, for Fanwood’s observance of National Night Out, a celebration of the community’s partnership with first responders.

The Fanwood Police Dept., Fanwood Fire Dept. and the Rescue Squad were all there. It was a great chance for the kids to get an up-close look at a police car, Fanwood’s Ladder 1 and a rescue squad rig and talk with first responders.

In addition to the emergency equipment, there were raffles for kids and adults, face painting, crafts, games, food and more during the fun evening. New this year was a “dunk-a-cop” dunk tank, which drew good crowds, and a photo booth.
