National Night Out: East Bayside
August 7 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
National Night Out occurs in neighborhoods across the country on the summer evening of August 7. National Night Out is all about taking back our streets and public parks for a fun multicultural gathering that celebrates neighbors, the outdoors, and in our case, East Bayside!
It all starts with a parade led by the Ideal Maine Social Aid and Sanctuary Band from Mayo Street Arts at 6pm, winding through Kennedy Park and East Bayside to Fox Field for a free BBQ, performances by youth and local musicians, including traditional Rwandan dance and drumming by Ikirenga Cy’Intore, and puppetry by Shoestring Theater. Guest speakers TBA.
Meet and mingle with neighbors, listen to live music, and celebrate the cool vibrant place that is East Bayside! Brought to you by Mayo Street Arts, Portland Community Policing, the Root Cellar, EBNO, Portland Housing Authority, the Boys and Girls Club, the Opportunity Alliance, and Target.
