It was a night of fun and learning as the community came out Tuesday to PS 20 in Flushing to take part in National Night Out Against Crime.

The annual event, which has been taking place across the country for 30 years, is a way for residents to join forces with the police to take back the streets from criminals.

The 109th Precinct, headed by Deputy Inspector Brian Maguire, and its precinct council, led by Chrissy Voskerichian, hosted the program that drew a large crowd.

Area elected officials attended, including Queens District Attorney Richard Brown. But the stars of the evening were Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

There were informational tables set up by the police auxiliary and other groups, while youngsters were happy with the inflated jumpy ride and a rock climbing wall.

Welcome to the discussion.
