In 2016, Citizens, law enforcement agencies, community groups, businesses,youth organizations and local, state and federal officials from 16,142communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military basesworldwide joined forces to celebrate the “33rd Annual National Night Out”(NNO). Last year, the City of Berkeley had more than 80 neighborhood, businessand community groups participate in the event. 

Events typically consist of neighbors getting together for a potluck orbarbeque and some go as far as getting a jump house for the young ones and makeit a block party. While some groups keep it simple and do an ice cream social,others just do hors d'oeuvres. Whatever your flavor, keep it fun and invitingfor all of those in your neighborhood.  It is an excellent way to interactwith and get to know your neighbors better. Get the word out about thecelebration early to get people to participate in your event.
