4th Annual Light Up the Night Event - Tuesday, August 5th


The SOSNA Safety Committee is thrilled to announce the fourth annual Light Up the Night event on Tuesday, August 5th. This year we are partnering with the South Square Town Watch and the South of South Town Watch to celebrate National Night Out at the Grays Ferry Triangles (23rd & South Streets/Grays Ferry) from 5:30-8:00pm on the 5th.

This family-friendly, community event is being held to raise awareness about safety and crime prevention in the neighborhood, to get to know your neighbors, and to strengthen police-community partnerships. We will have fun, family-friendly activities, a neighbor meet and greet, and the Poi Dog food truck.
