National Night Out is on August 6
National Night Out is an annual national community-building campaign that promotes positive police and community partnerships as well as neighborhood camaraderie to make U.S. neighborhoods safer and better places to live throughout the country. National Night Out events are free to attend and the event has traditionally been held on the first Tuesday in the month of August.
Many National Night Out festivities include a hot dog and burger barbecue or other food, games and activities for kids, bounce houses, dunk tanks, safety information booths, K-9 demonstrations, touch-a-truck opportunities with local police and fire vehicles and music.
