This Tuesday is National Night Out, a night held each year to foster the relationship between communities and law enforcement.
Food, games, and giveaways are typically part of the night, but every community does things just a little bit differently.
National Night Out events will be held across the country, including a bunch right here in Lebanon County.
Lebanon’s National Night Out festivities will be taking place at the Salvation Army, 1031 Guilford Street. Those in attendance can look forward Salsa with professional dancer Mandy Iglesias at 7pm and and Yoga in Spanish with Christina Tinoco at 7:30. For yoga, you will need to bring your own towel or mat.
