McDONOUGH – The Henry County Police Department, along with the Henry County Sheriff’s Office, Henry County Fire Department and Henry County E-911 Departments are hosting the annual Henry’s Night Out event on Oct. 24 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Henry Town Center in McDonough.
Henry County’s National Night Out is a free event for the whole family, where parents and kids alike will have an opportunity to meet and speak with various public safety professionals.
Attendees will have the opportunity to take part in free food, fun activities, trunk or treating and live music for everyone to enjoy.
Henry’s Night Out is modeled after the National Night Out, traditionally held in August. However, with the extreme Georgia heat, public safety officers scheduled the event to October and its cooler temperatures.
National Night Out is a unique crime and drug prevention event that involves citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials coming together in a show of solidarity against crime.
The community event is observed in all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases.
At last year’s event, hundreds of attendees, parents and children came out and enjoyed meeting Henry County public safety personnel, county and city officials.
Henry’s Night Out will take place in front of the Target Department Store, located at 1850 Jonesboro Road in McDonough. The event is free and open to the public.
