Seneca County’s National Night Out Celebration is back this year on Tuesday, August 2.
The event is held with the aim of enhancing relationships between neighbors and law enforcement “while bringing back a true sense of community,” according to a release.
The event is set to take place from 5 to 7 p.m. on August 2 at the Seneca County Fairgrounds.
Night Out Celebration set for August 2
This year’s Night Out Celebration is the first to be held in person since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
It’s free and open to the public, with donations and local police benevolent associations funding the event.
Attendees can enjoy a free, family-friendly game of kickball, water-balloon toss and bouncy houses.
Families and community members are also welcome to meet members of the five local law enforcement agencies: Waterloo Police Department, Seneca Falls Police Department, Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Troopers and NYS Park Police.
The agencies will bring four-wheelers, drones, K-9s and cars to showcase and NYS Troopers will conduct a Seat Belt Convincer demonstration.
Free dinner included, transportation available
The Seneca Falls Rotary will provide free dinner to all who attend. Local bus services RTS will provide free transportation from identified Ovid, Romulus and Varick pick-up locations to help families conserve gas money.
Anyone with questions, as well as those interested in making a donation to the event, volunteering or participating, should contact Karen Burcroff at the United Way of Seneca County Office at 315-539-1135 or by email at [email protected].
