Police invite all to 'National Night Out' Oct. 4

For the second consecutive year, the Hendersonville Police Department invites the community for National Night Out! 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 1300 Seventh Avenue East in the lot that was previously the home of Four Seasons Cinemas.

“Building community is what the Hendersonville Police Department is all about,” Hendersonville Police Chief Blair Myhand said. “National Night Out is a great way for our Officers and staff to get to know the community and serve up a great evening of fun for the whole family.”

Hendersonville’s free event will include emergency equipment displays from the Hendersonville Police Department and Hendersonville Fire Department plus trucks from the city Public Works and Water & Sewer departments. In addition to free hot dogs and cold treats, activities will include a kids obstacle course, music, foam axe throwing, dunk tank, face painting and the return of last year’s popular Ellaberry Farm llamas. New this year will be a donut eating contest where participants can go head-to-head with a local HPD police officer.

National Night Out is an annual community-building event that promotes police-community partnerships. For more information and updates, visit
