Local, state and federal law enforcement and safety agencies will join residents of The Woodlands to celebrate National Night Out during the community-wide kick-off celebration at Northshore Park this Saturday, October 1 from 1 – 5 pm.
This free event is coordinated by The Woodlands Township, Neighborhood Services Department, and will include many safety and crime fighting demonstrations by local organizations. The National Night Out community-wide kick-off is planned as a great event for families, with free food, a bounce house, music, face painting, games and more. Guests will include Puffy Pine Cone, McGruff the Crime Dog, Smokey Bear and Carey Bear from Memorial Hermann Hospital. Free parking will be available at Aon Hewitt Associates, just a short walk to Northshore Park under Lake Woodlands Bridge.
The official date of Neighborhood National Night Out in Texas is Tuesday, October 4. On that date, residents are encouraged to gather between 5:30 and 8:00 pm on their street or in a nearby park. How a neighborhood celebrates is up to the people who live there; the purpose is to bring neighbors together to help fight crime. At the neighborhood event, residents will have the opportunity to create a thank you poster (paper will be provided) for our deputies and fire fighters. Neighbors will also have an opportunity to collect food and clothing to benefit Interfaith. Collection bags will be supplied by Kroger.
