Kids Night Out at PALpalooza  

By Lookout Staff

August 24, 2011 -- It's PALpalooza time again – the fun-filled festival at Pacific Park for hundreds of school-age kids and their friends on the police force.

Wednesday night from 5 to 11 p.m., the Santa Monica Police Activities League (PAL) will treat more than 300 children to a summer's-end blow-out of rides, games and yummy eats at the Santa Monica Pier's iconic amusement park.

“Pacific Park is a champion of all things PAL and we are very grateful for their commitment and hospitality,” said Eula Fritz, director of the Santa Monica Police Activities League.

“PALpalooza is a terrific event that brings the Santa Monica kids together with their counterparts throughout the state,” said Fritz. “The opportunity gives them a chance to have one last summer hurrah before the school year begins.”'

This will be the 7th Annual PALpalooza hosted by Pacific Park, which will donate all the food, games and rides for the event.

“We feel fortunate to have struck such a successful long term relationship with Santa Monica PAL on behalf of all the kids in the city,” said Jeff Klocke, director of marketing and sales at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier.

“PALpalooza keeps getting better each year, which now includes the statewide chapters,” said Klocke. “The excitement and joy the kids bring to the Park is matched only by the enthusiasm and smiles of our employees as they celebrate the day together.”

The Santa Monica PAL is Pacific Park's primary charitable organization on the Westside. Santa Monica PAL provides free programs to 1,600 area children in a safe, nurturing environment under the guidance and encouragement of local police.
