The City of Milton Police and Fire departments are partnering with the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety to host the 29th Annual National Night Out event Tuesday, Aug. 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Wills Park Equestrian Center in Alpharetta.

The Wills Park Equestrian Center is located at 11915 Wills Road in Alpharetta (click here for directions).

This year’s event includes three bounce houses for kids, an interactive fire safety house simulator, displays of police and fire vehicles and SWAT demonstrations. There will also be firefighter scenarios, technical rescue operations, police K9 dog scenarios and numerous other police and fire activities.

Milton and Alpharetta police and firefighters will serve hundreds of hot dogs and hamburgers, sodas and ice cream sandwiches in addition to donated food from Chick-fil-A and Vinny’s New York Pizza & Italian Grill. Longtime event sponsor Target will also be on hand offering giveaways and free eye exams.

“This is a very popular and fun event,” said Milton Community Outreach officer Ara Baronian. “We’re glad to participate with our partners in public safety from Alpharetta.”

Now in its 29th year, National Night Out is a unique crime and drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, an organization dedicated to building safer and better neighborhoods through community involvement. More than 15,000 communities nationwide participate in National Night Out, ranging from community block parties, to cookouts, to parades and flashlight walks.
