Where You Can Find National Night Out Events In Broome County
National Night Out (NNO) is back on Tuesday, August 2 and many local locations will be participating. National Night Out is a nationwide annual event that supports local police and fire departments and brings the community together under positive circumstances.
Most states celebrate NNO on the first Tuesday in August with Texas (and select areas) participating on the first Tuesday in October. In total, over 16,000 communities across the country participate in NNO and this year's nationwide motto is "give drugs and crime a going-away party".
National Night Out Binghamton Locations
National Night Out has been in our area since 1996 and several locations in the Southern Tier will be participating on Tuesday, August 2. Multiple Binghamton City Parks will be participating including Cheri A. Lindsey, Fairview and Recreation Park.
There's another location that will be a part of National Night Out on Tuesday, August 2nd and I'll be participating with them as well. It's happening in Hillcrest on 126 East Service Road.
It's in the parking lot of NorthPointe Church, Iron Works, My Uncle's Place and Binghamton Honda. It'll be a homecoming of sorts for me as I'll be joining Pastor Kenny and his crew in front of NorthPointe Church.
There'll be food, face painting, popcorn, balloons, and games. I'll be one of the game masters, so stop by and test your skills and win fabulous prizes. There will also be demonstrating Fire Truck and Safety Awareness.
So when your driving on I-88 in the Hillcrest area on Tuesday between 6-9 p.m., if you see fire trucks and flashing lights, it's just National Night Out. Don't rubberneck but get off Exit 1 or 2 and stop on by.
National Night Out will also be happening at the following locations from 5-8 p.m.:
- Cheri Lindsey Park, Binghamton
- Recreation Park, Binghamton
- Fairview Park, Binghamton
I hope you'll have a chance to stop by the place nearest you. I hope you'll also find the time to take a trip to Hillcrest too.
