There will also be police and fire vehicles to view, along with a scheduled visit from an air medical helicopter.
Event activities will include demonstrations from, K9 and SWAT officers, visits from McGruff the Crime Dog mascot, “Nat” the National Night Out Knight mascot, face painting, a bounce house and more. Refreshments will also be available for purchase.
