Our Barrington Police and Fire Departments host this fun, exciting, and educational night out for the entire family, which is held on August 10 during the regular Cruise Night evening in the Harris Bank Parking Lot at Cook & Station Streets.

Kids can see (and climb into!) police and fire vehicles, while everyone gets FREE hotdogs and hamburgers. Attendees can also receive a bike and helmet safety check and digital fin­gerprinting and ID kits. Family games include a bingo and hula hoop contest, trackless train rides, face painting, and a watermelon eating contest.

There will be a forensic science interactive display and pre­sentations on train safety and drug awareness, in addition to presentations by the Chicago Honor Guard Unit and the Chi­cago Mounted Patrol Unit, the Barrington Fire Department will also perform an extrication demonstration.

National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention aware­ness, generate support and participation in local anti-crime efforts, and strengthen neigh­borhood spirit and community relations.
