         This police and community partnership program takes place
      all across the United States on the first Tuesday of August each
      year! Over 30 police vehicles, fire trucks, and more will parade
      with lights and sirens through the Town of Jupiter passing out
      giveaways and waving “hi” to our community members!
         National Night Out enhances the relationship between
      neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a
      true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great
      opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under
      positive circumstances.
         We encourage all neighborhoods to make this night a
      fun community event! Meet some new neighbors and/or   Best Parade Viewing Locations By Your Area
