Opelika’s National Night Out started several years ago with the Concerned Citizens of Opelika hosting at Covington Rec Center. In 2021, the event moved to it's new location in courthouse square.
National Night Out is a Community-Building Campaign, to raise awareness on the following topics: Public Safety, Crime Prevention, Health, Education and Youth Programs.
Attendees will have the chance to interact with first responders from the Opelika Police Department, Opelika Fire Department, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, East Alabama Emergency Medical Services and Lee County Emergency Management Agency. Local community organizations will also provide resources and educational information. There will be free food, drinks, games, activities, live music and much more!
This year's event is planned by a committee consisting of community partners lead by Chairman Valestine Penn and Co-Chair Sherri Reese.
