National Night Out at Patterson Park 2018

National Night Out at Patterson Park is October 2

Friends of Patterson Park is hosting a neighborhood block party for National Night Out! Join us at the pavilion for a relaxed potluck dinner on Tuesday, October 2nd from 5:30-7:30 pm. Firefighters from Fire Station #14 have been invited to attend, kids can tear up the playground, and everyone can enjoy getting to know their neighbors. Hopefully the weather will resemble fall.

National Night Out is designed to strengthen communities and crime prevention awareness. Learn more at, and check out photos from last year’s celebration on Flickr.
