Many neighborhoods of Duluth are celebrating National Night Out to gather their local communities together.

National Night Out is a nationwide celebration aiming to curb crime and drug use while increasing the bond of local communities.

 Neighbors are encouraged to gather together and share food and fun for all ages. At some celebrations, local police, first responders and other community organizations will attend to encourage the community members to feel safe to work with those organizations.

Ambulances and fire trucks sometimes offer tours.  There are games to play and often live music too!

The Duluth city website has a listing of many of the celebrations taking place across the city.  Check it out and see if there is one near you.
