National Night Out (NNO) is a unique crime/drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW). It is scheduled the first Tuesday of August each year.
Every year, many neighbors in Lindenwood participate in National Night Out. It is always a fun time! Some blocks get permits to block off their streets and hold their party in the middle of the road. Others meet at one of the group gatherings, such as the annual event at Epiphany Church.
Church Party & Block Parties
The heat never stops the National Night Out Party at Epiphany. The annual event is sponsored by five Lindenwood churches; Timothy Lutheran, Epiphany, Mt. Tabor, Union United Methodist, and Southwest Baptist. The party takes place outside and in the gym. A good time is always had by all!
Activities include many fun things for kids of all ages, like the balloon toss and 3-legged race. Food offerings include hamburgers, hot dogs, soda, ice cream, watermelon, and snow cones. Most of all it’s a chance for neighbors to get together and enjoy each other.
Blocks in the neighborhood participate in National Night Out each year.
Neighbors block off their streets to gather under trees, bring out tents, grills, tables and activities. You’ll see pot-luck dinners, barbecuing, games for children, and of course meeting neighbors!
Police officers and firefighters often visit block parties to meet residents and talk to children.
Block parties are sponsored by the St. Louis City Neighborhood Stabilization Team.
