New Brunswick Neighborhoods Celebrate National Night Out

New Brunswick’s annual National Night Out celebration for 2018 was another fun night of food, music, games and community building across our City.

National Night Out is a community event held annual on the first Tuesday in August, intended to build relationships between neighbors as well as between residents, elected officials and police and fire officials. Picnics and barbecues are held throughout the City, organized by community and crime watch groups that work with the police department year-round on quality of life issues.
