Register your Night Out block party now, and party down on Aug. 6

The people will take to the streets at Seattle’s 29th Annual Night Out celebration on Aug. 6 this year. It’s an opportunity to gather, connect, eat and drink with your neighbors while closing down the street to vehicle traffic.

Participation in the event by West Seattleites is traditionally high, so for the sake of keeping that trend alive here are the details on registration.

To register your Night Out party and have your street officially closed for the night, visit

There is also the opportunity to apply for a Small Sparks Fund grant to help pay for your party – up to $1000. The deadline for grants is JULY 8 and more information is available at
