National Night Out events are designed to connect Nabrs and bring together first responders with the NabrHoods they serve. Tuesday's event was the perfect example of this happening! Approximately 100 residents came out for a wonderful evening that truly exemplified the meaning of community.
Fire fighters, police officers and EMTs were all in attendance, chatting with residents and explaining their role in supporting the community. Kids received red fire helmets to wear and had the opportunity to tour a fire engine and EMT vehicle. The Office of Community Liaison for the Austin Police Department was presented with a check from Randall’s and Dietz & Watson to continue to build relationships within the great city of Austin.
With Raphina and Code 3 providing a musical backdrop of modern pop and rock, kids played games and adults caught up with their Nabrs. Everyone enjoyed free Dietz & Watson hot dogs, chips and Waterloo Sparkling Water. For those who wanted to kick back with a refreshing beer, North by Northwest Brewery provided free microbrew tastings. Scoops Ice Cream Truck was in attendance to cap it all off with some delicious ice cream!
It was a perfect way to spend a Saturday evening and we can’t wait to see everyone again on October 27th for Fright Night!
