On August 4, everyone throughout Montgomery County is invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 32nd Annual National Night Out. This will be Montgomery County’s third year participating.
The event will take place at Milligan Park from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Aug. 4. There will be many local non-profits and businesses there, local police departments, the Crawfordsville Fire Department, a 40-foot obstacle course bounce-house, horses from the Achaius Ranch, a Silly Safari Show at 7:30 p.m., caricaturist artists, a scavenger hunt and much more!
National Night Out is a completely free event and is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are strong and are fighting back against localized crime.
During the event, the community will be able to enjoy free swimming at Milligan Park Pool from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., free hotdogs at the South Shelter, the Silly Safari show in the north shelter at 7:30 p.m. and much more.
