However, the first Tuesday in August, no one around our neck of the woods wants to spend any more time outdoors than necessary, so local leaders made the decision a number of years ago to move the local events to a time when temperatures were a little more accommodating.

That time is now! Tonight, from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, a number of areas of Bossier Parish will join Shreveport and scores of other cities to celebrate "National Night Out" with neighborhood block parties!


Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington says of the event, "National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness and strengthen partnerships between our neighbors and law enforcement. I encourage residents to hold block parties, cookouts, or other outdoor activities to help build strong relationships with their neighbors and get to know the deputies who patrol their area.”
