[ARCHIVED] National Night Out Returning to Indian Trail

National Night Out

Law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency responders and all others who put their lives on the line every day to protect Indian Trail’s residents will be coming together to celebrate National Night Out, an annual community-building event that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

Indian Trail’s National Night Out 2021 will take place Tuesday, Aug. 3, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Chestnut Square Park (320 Chestnut Parkway). The event gives the community an opportunity to meet emergency services personnel in a comfortable, friendly setting and get to know those who protect and serve Indian Trail.

It will also give residents a chance to check out some of the tools of the trade these heroes use to keep their community safe – fire trucks, Union County Sheriff’s Office cruisers, K9 unit, SWAT vehicles and much more. Visitors will be able to check out all the vehicles and speak firsthand with those who know them best, learning more about what law enforcement and first responders do every day.

“The Union County Sheriff’s Office, our local firefighters, emergency services personnel and many others are part of all the events we hold in Indian Trail, though you may not always see them there working hard to keep our festivals safe and fun,” said Hayden Kramer, Indian Trail Parks and Recreation director. “Having the opportunity to honor them with National Night Out, and let them take part in the festivities themselves, is a wonderful chance for us to say ‘Thanks!’”

At this year’s event, attendees will also have a chance to throw water balloons at Mayor Michael Alvarez. Anyone who brings school supplies to donate to the Union County School Supply Drive can throw a water balloon at the mayor. To view the list of school supplies needed, visit https://www.unioncountync.gov/departments/community-support-outreach/volunteer-services/school-supply-drive.

The first 1,250 guests will also be able to enjoy free hot dogs, chips, drinks and a treat from Sno-Ball Cabin.

“Oftentimes, when families and children interact with first responders, it’s because something has gone wrong and they need help,” said Abbey Ball, Indian Trail communications director. “National Night Out provides an opportunity for residents to get to know the people behind the uniforms in a fun and comfortable setting to create positive relationships and strengthen our community.”
