Folks throughout Davis enjoyed a perfect Sunday afternoon in each other’s company as they attended an estimated 90 block parties, ice cream socials, potlucks and barbecues as part of the eighth annual Neighbors’ Night Out, a program jointly sponsored by the city of Davis and Associated Students of UC Davis.
Some parties welcomed special guests, including representatives of the Davis police and fire departments, Gunrock, the UCD cheer team and Unitrans buses.
