Since 1984, on the first Tuesday of every August, communities and law enforcement across our nation have come together to get to know one another and ultimately strengthen our commitment to one another.
This night is known as National Night Out, and this year over 37 million people will participate and celebrate in the event.
On the evening of Aug. 6, within Ogle County, there will be four events hosted, which take place in Byron, Polo, Oregon, Rochelle, and Ogle County will host their event within Byron.
Bring your family. Bring your friends. That kid down the street that hangs out with your kid(s) - bring him or her too. This event is for all.
The events will focus on public safety agencies having their equipment on display, as well as having activities and games for all.
Our local fire departments will also be joining us to showcase their services and equipment.
Our departments look forward to a wonderful night out of getting to know you more and an evening of fun for all.
Below is a listing of the events in each of our communities:
• Polo: 5-8 p.m. in the 100 block of West Colden Street,
• Oregon: 5-7 p.m. at the Oregon Coliseum (Fourth and Franklin Streets),
