Monday night, the City Council approved holding the majority of the event at Stanton Lake Park allowing for additional room for helicopters to land.  

Officer Zach Ractliffe coordinates the program for the Falls City Police Department.  He is expecting to have 13 different agencies for this years event which will include free hot dogs for everyone. 

The event will begin at 6 in the evening and around 7:45, everyone is invited to take part in a “March Against  Crime.” Law enforcement personnel will be walking with the crowd from Stanton Lake to the Aquatic Center for free swimming.   The streets will be blocked off during the walk for safety.
