[ARCHIVED] MLT National Night Out Receives Major Award

MLT National Night Out Receives Major Award

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE—The City of Mountlake Terrace was recently selected as a National Award Winner for its outstanding participation for National Night Out Against Crime,” a crime, drug and violence prevention program by the National Association of Town Watch.

Approximately 1,000 people celebrated the Mountlake Terrace National Night Out event on August 2. Organized by city employees, National Night Out emphasizes meeting neighbors, reducing crime, and celebrating community.

Premera Blue Cross, the city’s largest employer, is the main sponsor of this event. However, dozens of local businesses provide cash donations to cover the costs of the free food and entertainment provided for the community.

National Night Out is held at Evergreen Playfield and features a myriad of family-friendly entertainment. This year’s event included board breaking and self-defense demonstrations by Seattle TaeKwonDo in Mountlake Terrace, and a Police K9 exhibition, balloon artist, roving juggler on stilts, water walking balls, caricature artist and hula-hoop dancer. 

Displays of public safety vehicles are on site to allow kids and their parents the opportunity to sit inside and get to know public safety personnel. Several city departments participated with specialty vehicles, equipment and information. A number of local businesses and civic organizations also provide information and giveaways to showcase their services.

Mountlake Terrace is well-known for its National Night Out event.  The National Association of Town Watch has recognized the event as a National Award Winner for its outstanding participation for several years.  If you would like to donate to our 2017 event or participate with a table, please contact Danielle Singson in our Police Department at (425) 670-8260 or
