Families enjoy National Night Out in Evart

EVART — Families of the Evart community and beyond gathered at East Riverside Park on Aug. 6 to join in the fun during National Night Out, which is an opportunity for children and parents to interact with a number of local emergency response personnel and resources geared toward safety and family

relationships.

Attendees enjoyed games, free hot dogs, cotton candy and snow cones, a bounce house, a splash pad and free back-to-school prizes.

In addition, police, fire and medical vehicles were on hand for viewing and the Cadillac Fire Department offered a smoke house for children to practice their escape plan during the case of a house fire.
