In addition, this year’s event will honor the origins of National Night Out by promoting the "Lights On" campaign. The earliest celebrations included a front porch light vigil as a show of support for neighborhood watch practices.
National Night Out started 33 years ago based on the idea of showing neighborhood solidarity by leaving front porch lights on for a certain amount of time on the first Tuesday in August. Danville Police encourage residents this year to honor the origins of National Night Out and to show their support for Danville's Neighborhood Night Out by leaving their lights on Tuesday evening.
