National Night Out

National Night Out is an annual community-building event that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer, better place to live. This event is a collaborative initiative involving numerous local businesses and nonprofits who have come together to celebrate community.

Last year, Walker’s National Night Out had over 1,000 attendees, including the mayor, local police, and fire departments. Families are welcome, and everything is free! The Walker event includes prize giveaways, face painting, bounce houses, games, balloon twisting, crafts, music, hot dogs, snow cones, and more!
