The Rotterdam Police Department will host National Night Out on Aug. 3. The annual event is held nationally by local police departments to build community relationships.
Schenectady Police and Sheriff’s Departments have collaborated to host the event in the past. However, Schenectady Police Department Public Information Officer Pat Irwin did not indicate whether the city would be hosting one this year.
In 2019, Rotterdam Emergency Medical Services sponsored the event.
Rotterdam Police will hold the event from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Rotterdam Youth Fields, 100 Princetown Road. The night will include fireworks, food, music and entertainment. There will also be a rock climbing wall, and people can also enjoy pony rides, a bounce house and the dunk tank.
