UNDATED - Tonight (Tuesday) is the 29th annual "National Night Out".

From 6:00 until 10:00 p.m. residents in neighborhoods in the St. Cloud metro area are asked to lock their doors, turn on their outside lights, and spend the evening with neighbors.

National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit, and send a message to criminals.
