NBCRightNow.com – National Night Out is celebrated across the country and many of our local cities taking part have been hosting events for decades.

The events are often sponsored by local law enforcement as a chance to interact with the people they serve and protect. Some neighborhoods also hold block parties that are affiliated with the national event as part of an awareness campaign. The “night’s out” take place at night to make children feel safe and to show that they can be protected at all times of the day.

Our local events on August 5th:

YAKIMA- 19 block parties throughout the area

WALLA WALLA- From 5-8 p.m. at Pioneer Park

RICHLAND- John Dam Plaza – 5-8 p.m.

PASCO- Individual block parties throughout the city

KENNEWICK – Southridge Sports Complex 5-7:30 p.m.
