You can advertise local National Night Out locations by hanging flyers in your business window. You may also partner with National Night Out block parties and assist them in planning their parties.

Churches/Civic Groups:

You can assist by making announcements to members so they may attend their individual National Night Out block parties. You may also be able to assist with setting up tables/chairs or other props at various parties. Some churches and schools have allowed area block parties to host the National Night Out event in their parking lots.
