MacArthur Avenue’s National Night Out will be held rain or shine from 6-8 pm on Tuesday, August 7 in the 4000 block of MacArthur Avenue. One of the largest events of its kind in the Richmond metro area, this annual even draws hundreds of people to Bellevue’s central commercial strip. Sponsored by the Bellevue Merchants Association and the Richmond Police Department, it is an evening of family-oriented and kid-friendly activities—including the ever-popular misting tents. Northside’s native son, Jonathan the Juggler, will be on hand working his magic.
The merchants of MacArthur offer wide a range of taste treats for kids and adults alike—root beer floats compliments of Once Upon a Vine and Rich’s Stitches; misting tents and snow cones at Decatur’s Garage; iced tea and cookies from Stir Crazy; something sumptuous and special from Demi’s Mediterranean Kitchen, the mill on MacArthur and Dot’s Back Inn; garlic knots from Zorba’s; chips and dip from Mi Jalisco; and much, much more.
