On Tuesday, August 6, from 6 to 8 p.m., the Sea Isle City Police Department (SICPD) will host a National Night Out celebration at the Excursion Park Band Shell, located at JFK Boulevard and the Promenade. As is the case in communities throughout the country, the focus of Sea Isle City’s National Night Out is to increase awareness for important police programs, such as drug prevention, avoiding juvenile alcohol use, and other anti-crime efforts.
Sea Isle City’s National Night Out will feature complimentary snacks, giveaways and a variety of free activities, including face painters, inflatable bounce houses, a photo booth, games, live music, and other family-friendly attractions. There will also be a dunk tank, which will raise funds for Mayor Desiderio’s 2019 Holiday Toy and Food Drive.
Families will also enjoy a variety of interactive law enforcement and safety displays, manned by representatives from Sea Isle City’s Fire Department, Division of Emergency Medical Services and Beach Patrol, as well as the Cape May County’s Sheriff’s Office, Prosecutor’s Office, and S.W.A.T. Team. At the SICPD table, officers will allow people to try-on special goggles that show how severely alcohol impairs basic functions.
Also during National Night Out, the SICPD will host a graduation ceremony for their 1st Annual Sea Isle City Police Department Kid’s Camp, during which the participants will receive Certificates of Completion.
After the National Night Out activities end, everyone can enjoy a free showing of the movie Incredibles 2, which will begin at dusk at Excursion Park. Families are reminded to bring folding chairs or beach blankets to recline on the park’s lawn during the movie.
