Neighborhoods across East Multnomah County joined millions of people nationwide Tuesday evening, Aug. 7, for an annual community-building event.

National Night Out is a way to strengthen relationships between neighbors and law enforcement, while bringing back a true sense of community. Many local groups hosted parties with cookouts, games, music and more.
