Tuesday October 1, neighborhoods all across Texas will come together to get to know each other.

The idea behind National Night Out is simple: step outside your house and get to know your neighbors so you can look out for each other. It’s also a time for us to get to know the local police and fire departments so we can work together in the community.

Olympia Estates will hold a block party on October 1st from 6:30 – 8:30 PM at the Olympia Estates Park on Welborn Dr. Come meet your neighbors and local police; enjoy the free food and fun.

While National Night Out is traditionally held the first Tuesday in August in the rest of the country, Texas holds its block parties the first Tuesday in October to hopefully get cooler weather.
