Family fun at city field with National Night Out


The third annual National Night Out is coming to Holmes Beach City Field from 4 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2, bringing lots of family fun to the community gathering.

Features for this year’s event include food, baked goods, games for children, bounce houses, a big slide and a dunk booth where attendees can try their luck at dunking Holmes Beach Police Chief Bill Tokajer. Community organizations also will be sponsoring informational booths with some giveaways. Some children will go home with new bicycles, sponsored by local businesses, or backpacks full of school supplies, sponsored by The Sun.

The event is free and is sponsored by the HBPD and the city of Holmes Beach. Code Enforcement Officer James Thomas will provide music and entertainment throughout the afternoon.

To make this year’s event an even bigger success than previous years, the HBPD is seeking community sponsors for attractions, donations and giveaways.

Donations sought include beverages, bicycles and funds to cover items that aren’t donated for the event. Sponsors also are sought to provide food, snacks, beverages, bounce houses, slides and other games suitable for children. To donate funds by check, please make them payable to The Police Special Projects Fund.

To donate, volunteer or for more information, contact Sgt. Vern McGowan or Officer Josh Fleischer at 941-778-2677 or [email protected]
