Mark your calendars! One of the City of Harrisburg’s biggest and most fun annual events is scheduled to make its return this summer. National Night Out, an evening where city residents get to interact, have fun, and play games with local law enforcement and first responders in a safe and fun environment, is scheduled to return on Tuesday, August 1, 2023.

This year’s National Night Out will take place on City Island. More details will come in early summer.

The 2022 edition of National Night Out featured more than 80 non-profit organizations and hundreds of families at Camp Curtin Academy in Uptown Harrisburg. Among the activities for children included pony rides, bounce houses, balloons and face painting, and a dunk tank, where Harrisburg Police cadets sat waiting to be splashed in the water by anxious kids.
