The City of Mountlake Terrace has its annual award-winning National Night Out Against Crime on the first Tuesday evening in August at 6:00 p.m. at Evergreen Playfield, 22205 56th Avenue West.
Our free, family-friendly event combines entertainment, food and community involvement for a fun-filled evening. Entertainment includes music, bouncy house, caricature artist, free food and more!
Citizens can meet city officials, learn about local businesses and service organizations, and celebrate with neighbors.
Last year’s event featured Balloon Artist Sara Chastain from Puget Sound Balloons, caricature artist Steve Hartley aka Muggshotz, DJ "RT", face painting, MTYAA pitching game and an MLT Public Safety Quiz Show with prizes.
New last year was a Bike Rodeo conducted by Cascade Bicycle Club in the parking lot near the corner of 224th Street and 54th Avenue. Demonstrations from Seattle Tae Kwon Do for martial arts, Edmonds Police Department K9 Unit and Mountlake Terrace Dance Program also entertained. Police, Fire and Public Works vehicles are available for guests to sit in and check out from both the inside and outside.
Mountlake Terrace’s National Night Out event takes place due to donations from our businesses and sponsors as well as volunteers and participants from local agencies and organizations. Our key sponsor since the event commenced in the 1990s is Premera Blue Cross of Mountlake Terrace. Thank you, Premera, for your continued dedication to this very successful event!
