2020 Night to Unite Canceled
(September 15, 2020, Red Wing, MN) In the interest of our citizens’ health and safety, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Red Wing has canceled participation in the 2020 Night to Unite event planned for Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
We will celebrate Night to Unite’s return on Tuesday, August 3, 2021.
Night to Unite (National Night Out) is a statewide event that builds and fosters community bonds between citizens, businesses, and public safety organizations. This annual celebration occurs on the first Tuesday in August and gathers neighborhoods and public safety personnel together for an evening to promote safe communities.
Night to Unite has proven to be an effective, inexpensive, and enjoyable opportunity to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships to pursue safer communities. Community benefits often extend beyond this single evening event as neighbors get to know each other and the public safety agencies that serve them.
The City of Red Wing is dedicated to the ongoing health and well being of its residents. With its tradition of growth, stability, and innovation, city leadership continues to maintain a proactive approach and a firm commitment to businesses, history, natural resources, and, most important, the Red Wing community.
