San Antonio to celebrate 35th National Night Out

National Night Out has been around since 1984 and it began in the western suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Now with all cities and communities participating, National Night Out is when neighbors switch on their porch lights and sit outside of their house.

Celebrations got so big that communities put together little community festivals to get to know one another.

2018 marks 35 years of National Night Out. In San Antonio and Texas, NNO occurs on the first Tuesday in October in effort to fight crime and drug prevention in your neighborhood.
