Ontario’s Mayor and City Council would like to invite members of the community to attend this year’s National Night Out event on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. The festivities will begin with the “Party in the Park” at 5 PM at the Dorothy A. Quesada Community Center located at 1010 S. Bon View Avenue in Ontario.
The “Party in the Park” event is open to the public and will have entertainment, food, children’s games, and public safety and community service booths, including information on participating in Ontario’s Neighborhood Watch program.
Neighborhoods throughout Ontario will also be hosting their own block parties to celebrate their unity, police-community partnerships, crime prevention awareness, and community involvement. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and interact with Ontario’s Mayor and City Council, representatives from regional agencies, including American Medical Response, the California Army National Guard, the California Highway Patrol, the Inland Valley Humane Society, and various county and city agencies including the Ontario Police and Fire Departments.
Dog owners are encouraged to visit the Whispering Lakes Dog Park located at 2525 E. Riverside Drive in Ontario from 5 PM to 8 PM. Visitors will receive information about the new Dog Walker Watch program as well as other National Night Out items.
Ontario residents and businesses will join over 38 million people across the nation in this year's 36th Annual National Night Out sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. According to Mayor pro Tem Ruben Valencia, “This is a night for Ontario to stand together to promote safety and neighborhood unity.” This marks the 33rd anniversary of Ontario’s participation in the National Night Out program. Ontario has consistently ranked among the most active communities for National Night Out participation, and was awarded sixth place nationwide for 200+ neighborhoods participating in last year’s event.
