WYNNEWOOD, Pa., Aug. 1, 2017 /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 at the rear of the Wynnewood Shopping Center, 50 E. Wynnewood Road, Wynnewood, from 6 to 9 p.m. The event will be held in the rear of the center. National Night Out is sponsored by Philly's own Dietz & Watson, ADT and Ring.
Thousands of residents will enjoy live music, great new food, Phillie Phanatic, rides, carnival games, LM Police, Fire and EMS exhibits, roving entertainment, safety information and local nonprofits.
This is the "34th 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. "It's a great night to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie."
Parking will be available throughout the Wynnewood Shopping Center. Learn more about National Night Out at nationalnightout.org. For information on Lower Merion Community Watch visit LMCommunityWatch.org.
