Event Details for 2020
When not enduring a pandemic, participating neighborhoods nationwide are asked to turn on outside lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and public safety officials. This year is a bit different. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Woodland Police Department is asking neighborhoods to host virtual block parties with their neighbors. During your virtual block party, neighbors can come together to "meet" each other and even discuss or plan a Neighborhood Watch Program. It’s up to you - be creative, be safe, have fun and celebrate your neighborhood!
Registration is due on or before Tuesday, September 29, 2020.
