The annual National Night Out on Tuesday, Aug. 2, will feature activities at 12 neighborhood sites across Danville. Opening ceremonies will be held at 6 p.m. at Calvary Baptist Church, which is located at 416 Edgewood Drive.

The Police Department coordinates the event to build new community connections and strengthen existing ones. City Council members and city staff will attend the opening ceremonies and visit several other neighborhood sites.

Calvary Baptist Church is hosting the opening ceremony on behalf of the Edgewood/Schoolfield neighborhood.

Here is a list of the neighborhood sites:

• Westmoreland/Cedar Terrace – 5-8 p.m., Old Westmoreland School.
• Edgewood/Schoolfield – 6-8 p.m., Calvary Baptist Church, Edgewood Drive
• Wendell Scott – 6-8 p.m.
• Grove Park/Southwyck Farms – 6-8:30 p.m., Grove Park picnic shelter.
• Seeland Crossing – 6-8 p.m., Blaine Street at Garfield Street

• Danville Family Homes – 7-9 p.m., Reina Court off Richmond Boulevard.

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.
