2019 Summer Night Lights

2019 Summer Night Lights

2019 Summer Night Lights has officially kicked off! Communities county-wide are stepping up to bring the Summer Night Lights (SNL) program to youth and families throughout Tulare County featuring summer fun activities from June through August.  

Based on the Summer Night Lights program launched in the city of Los Angeles, in 2011 Step Up tweaked the program to create a successful community oriented hybrid.  Since 2011, the Tulare County Summer Night Lights Program has been largely ran by volunteers, with programming consisting of pool parties, dances, movies, sports nights and more.  

SNL's main goal is to keep kids off the streets and engage them in positive activities. A unique feature of the program includes the hiring of two youth from each eligible community who are then employed during the summer to assist in the planning and running of SNL activities. 

Seventeen (17) communities are participating this year and include Allensworth, Alpaugh, Cutler-Orosi,  Dinuba, Ducor, Earlimart, Exeter, Ivanhoe, Lindsay, London, Pixley, Porterville, Richgrove, Strathmore, Tulare, Visalia, and Woodlake.  Supporting SNL activities include community partners like the Tulare County Board of Supervisors, Boys and Girls Clubs, Proteus, Inc., Kiwanis Club of Porterville, and the Richgrove Collaborative. In addition, various cities, school districts and local churches also take part in organizing SNL events.

Pets and Heat

We all love spending the long, sunny days of summer outdoors with our furry companions, but hot weather can prove dangerous. Dogs are not good at keeping themselves cool, so providing protection for our pets in hot weather is critical.
