The second reason to attend next Tuesday’s National Night Out is that there will be fun activities for kids of all ages! We’re expecting activities, such as an ice cream social, snacks, a moon bounce, face painting, snow cones, other activities, and a visit from our local fire department! And while you’re there, you can learn how to protect your child with a child identification kit to help the police know who your child is if he or she gets lost.

More than 16,000 communities nationwide will host National Night Out events on Tuesday, Aug. 1st, hoping to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, and neighborhood friends and send a message to criminals letting them know that their neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. In College Park, the National Night Out will take place at several locations throughout the city.
