Area residents took the opportunity to mingle with local law enforcement and firefighters, as well as each other, at Pequot Lakes' National Night Out at Trailside Park, Breezy Point's Night to Unite at the city park and Crosslake's National Night Out at the newly renovated fire hall and the newly built police station Tuesday, Aug. 3.

People had the chance to inspect law enforcement and emergency vehicles, enjoy a meal and - in Pequot Lakes' case - take in some live music and entertainment at the events, done to strengthen neighborhood and community partnerships.

Breezy Point's event also gave residents an opportunity to learn more about a proposed community center, and allowed children to try out the park's recently installed playground equipment, which had been opened to the public just hours before the event.
