With the threat of a thunderstorm looming, Red Bank’s National Night Out event on August 7th managed to go on without any issues – while bringing together the community in the process.
With the collaboration between the Red Bank Police Department, Police Chief Darren McConnell, the Red Bank Boro and Council, and Mayor Pasquale Menna, the event featured food, local vendors, games for the kids, face painting, live music, and much more. There was a significant turnout for it, but more importantly, it helped to strengthen the relationship within the community.
We spoke to one of the main organizers of the event, police officer Dawn Shields, who explained to us what the event was all about! You can find out about it in our video interview above, but don’t forget to check out all the photos as well in our gallery below.
