MPD’s final “Beat the Streets” event of the summer is scheduled to take place at the Rita Bright Family and Youth Center (near 14th St. and Clifton Terrace NW) Thursday from noon to 7 p.m., according to an event flyer.
The festivities are part of an annual summer series of events meant to help boys and girls avoid crime and other illegal activities.
Police officers will hand out school supplies to everyone who wants them during the event. The party will also include “food, fun, music [and] love,” according to the event’s organizers.
Past “Beat the Streets” celebrations have had a rock climbing wall, a moon bounce and other games and activities. The events also generally feature information and handouts on safety and local services.
