State Rep. Liz Malia and District 6 City Councilor Matt O’Malley will launch the 22nd Anniversary of South Street Summer Hot Dog Nights on June 27. Cookouts will be held on every Tuesday through August 29.
“The police do a great job of coming out and interacting with the residents,” said Malia, D-11th Suffolk. “I’m glad to see this wonderful tradition last 20 years. It really is a model that works and that should be used more often across the city.”
While the longstanding commitment of both elected and public safety officials to hotdog nights maintain the tradition may not address all the neighborhood’s issues, it does help provide a safe and healthy space for all attendees to interact one hot dog at a time.
“Hot dog night is a special Jamaica Plain summer tradition and one I am proud to take part in every year. In addition to providing residents an opportunity to gather and eat together it allows us a chance to hear from them about how we can best serve all of the South Street housing development,” said O’Malley.
The event will take place at the South Street Boston Housing Development at 5:30 pm at 125 South St. Neighbors and residents of the South Street Boston Housing Development started the event to help build community and bring neighbors together.
