Set a reminder in your phone, and make plans now to attend the 2018 Evansville edition of National Night Out on Tuesday, August 7th at Wesselman Park!

The purpose of the event, founded in Philadelphia in 1984, is to give residents in communities across the country an opportunity to meet with first responders who help keep them safe day in and day out all year long.

Representatives from the Evansville Police Department, Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office, Evansville Fire Department, and more will be on hand to chat with you about concerns you may have going on in your neighborhood, how the weather's been, how good (or bad) the Colts will be this year, or whatever else is on your mind.
