North Houston NNO

The North Houston District will bring together area residents, businesses, military members and law enforcement for its 2022 National Night Out on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at Tom Wussow Park starting at 5pm. This annual family friendly event, one of the largest in Houston, is designed to enhance relationships among neighbors and law enforcement in a positive setting and to foster a sense of community within the North Houston area. Although National Night Out is celebrated in August in most parts of the country, it is scheduled in October in Texas to take advantage of more moderate weather.

Several activities are planned over the course of the three-hour event, including a “friendly” tug of war competition featuring Houston Police Department versus Harris County Sheriff’s Office and US Airforce recruits versus US Marine recruits. Raffles and drawings for giveaways of tablets, gift cards, gaming systems and TVs will be held near the end of the event. Other fun and family-friendly plans include:

• Petting Zoo • HPD Mounted patrol, K9 officers • Harris County Sheriff’s Office Helicopter, High Water Rescue boat, motorcycle unit • US Marines combat simulation trailer • Face paintings • Free food from Chick- Fil-A, snow cones and refreshments • Disney characters • “Chase” from Paw Patrol • DJ with dancing
