Despite COVID-19, the show will go on in Darrington

The town has changed its annual National Night Out gathering into a drive-thru event Tuesday.

DARRINGTON — In the age of COVID-19, Darrington’s annual National Night Out Against Crime will look a little different Tuesday evening.

Hosted by North Counties’ Families Services, the free event will be drive-thru from 6 to 8 p.m. at 1015 Seeman St. There will be raffles, music, prizes and other goodies.

“National Night Out is a great opportunity to build community,” Mayor Dan Rankin said. “Everyone is welcome, so bring your family and join us in celebrating the first ever drive-thru event.”
