Cedar Riverside Neighborhood Enjoys National Night Out

The Cedar-Riverside community came together on a sunny Tuesday afternoon to celebrate National Night Out on the first of August. Children with colorful balloons lined up for face painting and free ice cream. They also played yard games to receive tickets to trade in for bubbles, whistles, books, and various school supplies. The Minneapolis Fire Department stopped by to show kids the inside of their fire truck and tickets for rides at Mall of America’s Nickelodeon Universe were handed out to the adults. Community Action Partnership of Hennepin County, Pillsbury United Communities, Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, and Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office were present to hand out information, wristbands, tattoos, and more.
