Today is 'National Night Out'. Communities around the country are celebrating. This year with everything that is going on in our country, I think this year it has a even bigger significance.

To find out the mission and message of 'National Night Out', go here.

In Binghamton, they are celebrating for the 21st time at six different locations across the city. They'll start at the Boys & Girls Club along with Carlise Apartments today at 1pm.

Columbus Park and Cheri Lindsey Park will have music and other other activities from 5-7. There will be a petting zoo at Fairview Park from 5-8pm.

Debra Hogan is the Neighbors against Crime Coordinator. She said that it's important because police officers can get out of their cars and meet the kids. Children get to meet the K-9 officers. It's a great way for people to re-connect.
