Fire engines and law enforcement patrol cars heading up Ocean View Boulevard Tuesday evening were welcome sights for dozens of residents who congregated on Manistee Drive. No, it wasn’t a police, fire or medical emergency. It was La Cañada’s version of the 25th annual National Night Out — a night out against crime and an opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other, meet their local police and fire emergency workers, and network for a safer community. Although neighboring communities have participated in the event before, this was La Cañada’s first year to join in the block party festivities.
