MAPLEWOOD, NJ - Residents came to DeHart Park for National Night Out in Maplewood on Tuesday night until about 7 p.m., when rain and thunderstorms caused the rest of the event to be cancelled.

South Orange's National Night Out event on Flood's Hill was canceled as well due to the inclement weather.

National Night Out promotes police-community partnerships, and provides public safety tips and information, according to their website.
