This year marks the 23rd annual National Night Out, a nationwide celebration involving over 34 million people in more than 10,000 cities and towns across the United States. With the enthusiastic participation of communities citywide, the City of Boston in conjunction with the Boston Police Department anticipates this year will be the most successful National Night Out in Boston’s history.
Bostonians have always enjoyed a little friendly competition. During National Night Out from Friday, July 28, through Tuesday, August 1, 2006, cities and towns nationwide compete against one another for first place, which is based on the nation’s best celebration. Since 1992, Boston has always finished in the top ten. This year we want to finish Number One!
National Night Out organizers are confident that Boston’s winning community spirit will shine and this year’s event will accomplish our goal of empowering peace within our city. The national competition is judged on the number of National Night Out-related events, event size and creativity, and overall community camaraderie with police, city agencies, and community-based partners. Examples of events include: Block Parties, Porch Sits, and Street and Garden “Lights On” campaigns.
