About 2,000 people from the neighborhood came out to share food, fun and information with police and fire officials at the 28th Annual on Tuesday night in North Hollywood Park.
Among the vintage police cars, musicians, clowns, face painting, free pizza and a moon bounce, there were fire and police officials mixing around with families in the community. It’s part of a national campaign with more than 15,000 neighborhoods in all 50 states participating, and last year more than 37 million people participated, according to its Web site.
“It was great to go to the many different celebrations in my district,” said City Councilman Paul Krekorian who traveled to Tujunga and other parks in his district. The largest, however, was at North Hollywood Park, where leaders from the North Hollywood Police division of the Los Angeles Police Department were in attendance.
Booths at the event included members of the libraries, TreePeople, various neighborhood councils, chambers of commerce, martial arts schools, The Magnolia Grille, the Rotary Club, the Museum of the San Fernando Valley, Patch.com and many others.
