WYNNEWOOD, Pa., Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Association of Town Watch (NATW), in partnership with Lower Merion Community Watch, will host the annual "National Night Out" (NNO) Festival in the Ruby's lot in Suburban Square in Ardmore on Tuesday, August 4th, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Thousands of residents will enjoy live music, great new food, rides, carnival games, LM Police, Fire and EMS exhibits, roving entertainment, safety information and local nonprofits.

All those attending are asked to please bring non-perishable goods to benefit Eldernet's Ada Mutch Food Pantry.

This is the "32nd Annual National Night Out" which will involve over 37 million people from 16,000 communities across the country from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.

National Night Out is the brainchild of Matt Peskin of Wynnewood who created the event for NATW back in 1984. The event is designed to: (1) Heighten crime prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and; (4) Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

"NNO brings neighbors and first-responders together under positive circumstances," Peskin said. "New food items this year include chicken tenders and fries and ice cream."

Parking will be available throughout the Suburban Square area. Learn more about National Night Out at www.nationalnightout.org. For information on Lower Merion Community Watch visit LMCommunityWatch.org.
