The City of Milton Police and Fire departments are partnering with the Alpharetta Public Safety Department to host the 30th Annual National Night Out event Tuesday, Aug. 6 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:
  • bounce houses for kids
  • interactive fire safety house simulator
  • technical rescue operations
  • displays of police and fire vehicles along with demonstrations
  • police K9 dog scenarios
  • state-of-the-art SWAT bus and active SWAT scenario
  • numerous other police and fire activities

    Please note: Some of the demonstrations involve the use of simulated blank gunfire and/or noise-making devices.
Come hungry, because Milton and Alpharetta police and firefighters, joined by volunteers, will serve hundreds of hot dogs and hamburgers followed by ice cream. Special thanks to business partners Chick-fil-A, Target, Dairy Queen and Costco for donating products for this year's event and the Alpharetta Public Safety Foundation for donating the ice cream.
"This is an awesome event to get the community together," said Milton Community Outreach Officer Ara Baronian. "We encourage everyone to come out and enjoy an evening filled with demonstrations and food."

The National Night Out "America's Night Out Against Crime" campaign, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), began in 1984 to bring awareness to crime and drug prevention activities, establish community-police partnerships and instill neighborhood camaraderie.

National Night Out now involves more than 37 million people throughout the United States and other countries. For more information on National Night Out, visit
