WATERVILLE — National Night Out, an event that happens once a year across the country sponsored by National Association of Town Watch. It is a unique crime/drug prevention event set for 5-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, in the South End at Green Street Park.

The national experience offers an opportunity for residents to join together to heighten awareness about crime and drug-abuse prevention, generate support for the participation in local anti-crime efforts, as well as strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.

Waterville’s National Night Out Neighborhood Festival is hosted by the Waterville Police Department, the South End Neighborhood Association and the South End Teen Center. The event is free, open to all and includes a hotdog and hamburger cookout, live music from the Sonny Perry Band along with children’s games, prizes, a climbing wall, a bounce house, information booths from the Waterville community, resource agencies, local police and Fire Department demonstrations and a raffle.
