National Night Out

Avondale residents are making the effort to bring attention to neighborhood safety issues by observing National Night Out Wednesday night.

National Night Out is an event to generate support for anti-crime initiatives, promote drug and violence prevention and rally support for police.  The event includes food, beverages, games, a front porch vigil and visits from local law enforcement.

The International Space Station astronauts will send a special long-distance message on NASA-TV for the event, encouraging communities to support crime prevention.
