Weekend Planner (August 1 - August 7): National Night Out, County Fairs, Claimfest, and More!

Posted by: NJ Kids Team - July 31, 2013

Dear Friends,

Next Tuesday, August 6, is National Night Out 2013. This annual event was started back in 1984 and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch to help combat crime and create a safe environment for our children and families. Of course, here at NJ Kids, we not only support the basic goal of NNO to create a crime-free environment, but we also embrace any opportunity to get the entire family together and head out for an evening (and hopefully more!) of fun.  It may still be a few days a way, but we hope you’ll take a moment to look at our ideas (and we’ve got a ton more on our website) and plan a family outing to celebrate this important event.  Whether you attend a sponsored National Night Out activity or simply create your own family idea, let’s all get enjoy a night out on August 6th.

  • National Night Out at Mennen Sports Arena – Free food, free entertainment and free ice skating
  • Somerset Patriots vs. Bridgeport Bluefish – It’s ‘Bring Back the Beach’ night and include Boardwalk food, a dunk tank and more
  • Collingswood National Night out – Carnival games, food music and more
  • Midnight Madness at Casino Piers – Stroll along the pier and enjoy Free entertainment from 7-10PM
  • NJ State Fair  - An old fashioned fair with barns of animals, carnival rides and games, acrobats, dog tricks and more

Enjoy your night out!
