The city of Davis, UC Davis and the Associated Students of UC Davis are jointly planning the eighth annual Davis Neighbors’ Night Out on Sunday, Oct. 13.
The event was initiated to encourage neighbors to get to know one another. Many participants have said they have lived in their neighborhood for years and continue to meet new people at each event.
Neighbors are asked to serve as party hosts for their neighborhoods and take the lead in setting up activities such as potluck dinners, ice cream socials and barbecues. The city helps with planning tasks, including sending out invitations and providing party reminder door hangers.
For the second year, the date coincides with UC Davis’ Homecoming celebration, which keeps residents and students in town to see the Aggies play Montana on the gridiron on Saturday, Oct. 12. UCD athletes will be available on Sunday to attend the Neighbors’ Night Out events.
