The family friendly festivities will host a number of events including: a classic car show, child fingerprinting, bicycle registration, pet adoption, music, hot dogs and pizza. Visitors will also have an opportunity to check out a variety of emergency service vehicles on display.
National Night Out is observed in over 16,000 communities nationwide (including Canada). It is hosted each year in communities across the country on the first Tuesday of August.
