Celebrate National Night Out and enjoy the summer’s first Starlight Movie, E.T., at Penny Park on Tuesday, August 5, beginning at approximately 8 p.m.
Prior to the movie, at 7 p.m., community members are invited to gather at Penny Park for a Neighborhood Meet & Greet as part of National Night Out. The National Night Out campaign began in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, support police-community partnerships, spark neighborhood camaraderie, and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. The campaign now involves more than 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities. Read more about National Night Out in Evanston
