National Night Out

Come to the DRCA’s National Night Out event on from 5:30 to 7:30 on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at Pat Miller Square to enjoy some custard from the Dairy Godmother and meet Alexandria’s first responders (including K-9s)!

DRCA hosts a gathering for National Night Out each summer. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Together, we are making that happen. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits.
