MASON CITY – Tuesday, August 4, 2015, marks the 32nd Anniversary for the Annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event. Starting at 5:00 p.m. residents are encouraged to show solidarity by turning on porch lights and heading to East Park for the free fun-packed “family affair” by the band shell. A variety of activities will be held including a kid power pedal tractor pull event, bounce houses and balloon creations by Today’s Your Day as well as displays and demonstrations presented by local community organizations and youth oriented programs. Free food will be served and there will be a drawing for prizes. This is a night for America to stand together to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity.

Join us in spending the evening outside “Giving Crime & Drugs a Going Away Party”.

This event is sponsored in conjunction with the National Association of Town Watch, and locally by the Mason City Community Policing Advisory Board along with the Mason City Police Department.

        Is NIT going to endorse one of the candidates? Or give a prediction? And, usually National Night Out is over in time for the news. I’d be curios if KIMT is even going to mention National night out. It’s a local event, so maybe not.

    While this is a good event, most people go for the free stuff. Go this year and take a walk through the crowd and see who’s there.

    Drug prevention night mean a whole lot of people on here can’t come because they are prevented.
