Yorkville National Night Out, car show events set this week

Police-community event set for Beecher Community Park Tuesday, with a car show Wednesday evening at Riverfront Park.

The City of Yorkville will be hosting two community events this week, one for National Night Out and another for vintage automobiles.

The city’s event for National Night Out, a nationwide police-community relations campaign, takes place Tuesday, Aug. 3 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Beecher Community Park 908 Game Farm Road. Festivities will include a touch-a-truck event, a meet and greet with police officers and super heroes along with music and hot dogs. More information is available here.

The city’s Wednesday, Aug. 4 event has a somewhat different speed, literally. The “Cruise Night” car show takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. at Riverfront Park on 131 E Hydraulic Avenue. Residents can bring their car to the park at the beginning of the event and get a chance to win Best in Show among different car and truck categories.

Pre-registration is not required and day-of registration is free. For more information contact the Yorkville Parks and Recreation Department at Recreation@yorkville.il.us.
