National Night Out event set in Youngstown
YOUNGSTOWN — The city’s 20th annual National Night Out parade and picnic is scheduled for Aug. 7.
The event, held nationally in more than 10,000 communities, is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for local anti-crime programs, strengthen police-community partnerships and empower people to fight crime.
Those participating in the local parade are asked to be at the former Wilson High School on Gibson Street at 4:30 p.m. The parade starts about 5 p.m. and ends at Homestead Park on Homestead Street on the city’s East Side. A picnic will follow at the park with food donated by local business owners.
