Tuesday night, Aug. 4th, was “National Night Out,” an annual event where neighborhoods get together with local police and other officials for neighborhood gatherings with the goal of giving crime and criminals a “going away party.”

Photographer Michael Brunk dropped by a party thrown by the Olympic View Estates Homeowner’s Association right here in Burien:

  • This is the 8th year they’ve participated
  • A total of 28 homes are in the neighborhood
  • The homeowners association pays for the BBQ and entertainment, including facepainter Karen Haines from, DJ Leanna Mason from and a bouncy toy for the kids
  • Neighbors also brought food to share
  • The fire department sent a truck over with fire fighters to participate
  • A detective from the King County Sheriff’s department also stopped by
  • Local politicians were involved as well (Councilmember Kathy Keene attended as well as a couple of other reps from different departments)
