Tuesday Night is the 36th Annual National Night Out, a drug and crime prevention event,  where residents are invited city-wide to come to outside and interact with their fellow neighbors and local law enforcement.

The event page on Facebook says you’re encouraged to step out on your porch and chat with your neighbors, and then head to your local park where law enforcement and first responders will be hanging out. As you can see below, each location will have events happening during the event time, and the times seem to vary a bit, but all happen on Tuesday, August 6th – unless it noted differently.

Not only will you be able to see a fire truck up close, and meet police officers, you’ll also be able to learn about services and programs offered in your neighborhood.
