TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - National Night Out, will be held on August 6 this year at Fairbanks park. This event gives families a chance to safely spend a night out.
In years past, the event has brought concerts, games, and food.
The event also gives law enforcement, firefighters and first responders a chance to mingle with the community they live in.
