SOMERVILLE, NJ – Moms and dads with strollers and kids in hand moved around Carol Pager Park, paths criss-crossing as they steered towards the police car Bounce House, food and drink, exhibits, demonstrations, fire trucks and ambulances.

Stopping frequently to visit with friends and neighbors, hundreds of borough residents joined together for National Night Out, an annual “feel good” festival meant to reinforce positive interaction between the community and its police force.

There were more than enough free hot dogs and snow cones to go around as well as a smattering of local officials, the mayor and members of the Borough Council.

Night Out is sponsored by the Somerville Police Department.
