National Night Out Scheduled for August 2nd


Brenda Viola, the Lower Merion Township publicist passes along this bit of news: Lower Merion Community Watch, in partnership with the National Association of Town Watch, will host a “National Night Out” Community Festival on the West Parking Lot in Suburban Square in Ardmore on Tuesday, August 2nd from 6 – 9 p.m.

The lot is at Montgomery and Anderson Avenues in Ardmore.

The National Night Out event will feature live music, food, rides, the Phillie Phanatic, roving entertainment, local and state officials, carnival games, giant slide, police, fire and EMS exhibits.  Admission is free, although the food tent is $4, rides are $2, and games are $1.

The event is held in conjunction with the “28th Annual National Night Out” which will involve over 15,000 communities across the country from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.

National Night Out is the brainchild of Matt Peskin of Wynnewood who created the event for NATW back in 1984.  Culminating on the first Tuesday each August, National Night Out now involves over 36 million people.  Peskin said, “It’s a great night to promote neighborhood camaraderie and police-community partnerships.”
