New Hope Cancels National Night Out Event for 2020
New Hope will cancel its annual neighborhood gathering called National Night Out, New Hope’s Night to Unite this year. The city cited public health and safety reasons.
A press release says it was “not a decision made lightly, as we understand that connecting with neighbors and community in these uncertain times is more important than ever.”
National Night Out, New Hope’s Night to Unite usually takes place the first Tuesday in August. Neighbors host potlucks, games and gatherings. Police, city staff, and elected officials often stop by block parties. The city first postponed the event until October before canceling it altogether.
The city says they look forward to a great National Night Out event in 2021.
