“We will be holding it at Carrollton Park, Hillstreet Park, Lucas Village Community and Mullinex Park,” said Michele Bowman, Public Information Coordinator for Frederick City Police.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August.

“There will be activities, demonstrations, and children’s activities.  We’re gonna have some food at each location, so we’re encouraging the community to come out, and we’re going to have a great night.”
