The Copperas Cove Police Department will be hosting the 20th Annual National NIght Out Kick Off Party on Saturday September 30th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM in downtown Copperas Cove at Avenue E and South Main Street.

There's going to be lots of family fun and food as well as door prizes given away throughout the evening with most events being free of charge and other priced at only .25 cents each. There will be crime prevention cartoon characters like McGruff The Crime Dog for the kids and musical entertainment provided by the YMCA.

The kickoff party is great opportunity to meet your neighbors and have some fun and to also get to know your community to help prevent crime. The official National Night Out is Tuesday October 3rd but let's kick it off the right way this weekend!
