The August 3 event, hosted by the City’s Police Department, will be held in four neighborhoods with law enforcement officials cooking complimentary hot dogs and mingling with neighbors from 6-8 p.m.

Locations for the 2021 National Night Out events are:

• Needmore Recreation Center at 222 Canteen Ave.

• Greentown Park at 300 Moss St.

• Suber Road Baptist Church at 445 Suber Rd.

• Greer Cultural Arts Park at 804 Trade St.

“We want to get back to that local block-party atmosphere that encourages interaction between the residents and those who serve them,” said Sgt. Jeff Smith. “After the past year, we also hope residents will feel more comfortable in a smaller group setting with distancing opportunities for those who desire them.”

City of Greer police and firefighters annually take part in National Night Out, an annual community-building campaign designed to promote police-community relations and camaraderie in neighborhoods. The event has been held at Greer City Park for the past three years.

Activities at all four locations are being planned by the patrol sergeants for each area. Participants may expect giveaways, activities for all ages, and free drinks and grilled hot dogs.

“Our goal is to provide an atmosphere of fun and fellowship for both children and adults and to let everyone know that we are partners in maintaining a high quality of life in the city of Greer,” Smith said. “We like to let neighbors know that a connected community is a safer community.”
