National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and their local law enforcement.  This year’s event is scheduled for Tuesday, August 6th from 5:00 to 7:30 pm at April Hills Park in McFarland.


Each year National Night Out offers fun events for the whole family.  This year’s events include a bouncy house, a mist tent, Reptile Rapture, and a demonstration by the Odijn, the bomb detection K9.  Attendees will be able to see equipment including fire trucks from the Blooming Grove Fire Department, the Dane County bomb truck and robot, squad cars, patrol boats, Harley-Davidson patrol motorcycles, an armored tactical vehicle, and the Dane County Crime Scene Unit.  Complimentary food will be available while it lasts, and a signed Green Bay Packer football will be raffled at no cost.


April Hills Park is located at 3574 Carncross Drive in McFarland.  This event is sponsored by the Dane County Sheriff’s Office and the Town of Blooming Grove.
