The Newport Beach Police Department will participate in the 29th annual National Night Out event from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Bonita Canyon Sports Park.
The Newport Beach Fire Department will cook and serve hamburgers and hotdogs, and there will be games, crafts, face painting for kids and an appearance by McGruff the Crime Dog. Free child ID safety kits also will be provided, and parents can take photos of kids next to police vehicles.
The last time the Newport Beach Police Department participated in the National Night Out event was in 2008. Budget constraints canceled the program until this year, when Chief Jay Johnson reinstated it.
The park is located east of MacArthur Blvd. between Bonita Canyon Drive and Ford Road.
