2020 National Night Out goes virtual
In light of COVID-19, the City of Dallas is offering newer, safer ways to celebrate National Night Out 2020 virtually on October 6. National Night Out is a community-building campaign that is celebrated across the nation promoting police-community partnerships and encourages neighborhoods to come together and the City is offering a few different ways residents may connect during National Night Out including our “Party Packets” for neighborhood organizations.
Each packet has enough city of Dallas gear and information for up to 10. They are first-come, first-served, and will be available for pickup beginning on October 1. A complete list of Party Packet pickup locations are below. Contact [email protected] for more information.
If you’re looking for ways to commemorate the night, here are some virtual ideas to connect with your neighbors virtually.
Virtual Game Night
Use video chatting software like Zoom, Google Hangouts, Facetime and/or Skype to connect the players.
Pick a game: Some of the virtual games below are free, others have a cost associated with them. Research and find the ones best suited for your group.
