National Night Out
July 31, 6:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
National Night Out is commonly called “America’s Night Out Against Crime” and typically takes place on the first Tuesday of August each year. It is a nationwide event designed to heighten drug prevention and crime awareness, generate support and participation in local anti-crime efforts, and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnerships.
During National Night Out, residents are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, firefighters and other City personnel. Events such as cookouts, block parties and neighborhood walks all occur simultaneously throughout Naperville and across the nation.
Not every neighborhood in Naperville hosts a National Night Out event, so the City of Naperville, in partnership with the YMCA, is pleased to host a free community-wide event for everyone to enjoy the day before National Night Out!
Naperville’s National Night Out Kick-Off will begin at 6 p.m. on Monday, July 31, outside the Fry Family YMCA, 2120 95th St, Naperville, IL 60564.
The event features FREE family fun, including entertainment and giveaways. Attendees can play in a bounce house, participate in games and activities, check out police equipment, and enjoy food for purchase from food trucks before setting up blankets or chairs to enjoy an outdoor showing of Disney-Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc.” at sunset.
In the event of rain, the movie will be shown indoors.
