For the sixth time in eight years, Minneapolis’ National Night Out campaign was honored for being the best among the nation’s large cities.
The night out is a nationally organized effort to promote neighborhoods and safety. Neighbors throw block parties to better get to know one another.
This year’s Night Out, held Aug. 5, attracted more than 60,000 Minneapolis residents to 1,111 separate events.
Minneapolis was honored as the top National Night Out organizer among cities with populations above 300,000. St. Paul was named No. 1 among the second-largest tier of cities.
Texas was named the top state.
