National Night Out is one of the most innovative programs ever. The best part of the event is the connections made in your own neighborhoods. You don't have to be best friends with your neighbor, although it sure would be nice if you were, but in reality sometimes that doesn't happen. If for no other reason,  it's a great way to familiarize yourself with your neighbors-this is good for numerous reason. (like who is suppose to be there and who shouldn't be in your neighborhood, remember it takes a village)
