On Tuesday, August 1, neighborhoods throughout San Rafael are invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “34th Annual National Night Out” crime and drug prevention event. From 6 to 9 pm, residents in neighborhoods throughout San Rafael and across the nation are asked to spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. Many neighborhoods will host special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, contests, youth activities and more. This is a night to send a powerful message about neighborhood unity. If you would like to host an event, please fill out a registration form.
