National Night Out Tuesday in Kearney

Kearney — Kearney will join other cities across Nebraska and the country in hosting community-building events Tuesday night, Aug. 2, for National Night Out.

Kearney’s free event will be held from 7-9 p.m. at Centennial Park at 602 W. 13th Street.

An annual get-together, National Night Out promotes strong police-community partnerships and neighbors working together to make neighborhoods safer.

Neighbors throughout Kearney and across the nation are asked to turn on their front porch lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and law enforcement. Along with the traditional outside lights, most communities celebrate National Night Out by hosting block parties, and other various community events with safety demonstrations, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and more.

Tuesday’s event will include a bounce house, food and police drone, K9 and motorcycle demonstrations, and a walk against crime. Vehicles and equipment will be on display from Kearney Police Department, Kearney Volunteer Fire Department, CHI Health Good Samaritan Hospital, Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office, Nebraska State Patrol and UNK Police Department.
