Event Details

National Night Out was designed to enhance the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community under positive circumstances. National Night Out events are held in August nationwide, however our event is held in October to beat the summer heat. There will be safety information and displays, as well house games and lots of interactive activities. 

Touch-a-Truck allows children to get in the driver’s seat with a free hands-on experience with vehicles of all kinds. We will have local representatives and their vehicles from emergency, construction, landscaping, military, transportation, and delivery all in one place! Children will be allowed to touch, climb on, and ask questions about their favorite trucks and cars in a safe and supervised environment.

What is the difference between a Community Event and a Town-Organized Event?

Community Events 
This is an event that a non-profit organization runs, pays for, and plans. Town of Apex staff provides an event location (Town Hall Campus, Salem Street, etc.), along with staff from public safety, public works and other departments, as necessary.

Town-Organized Events
This is an event that the Town of Apex creates, pays for, and plans. Town of Apex staff manages the programming, including activities, logistics, and vendors. This is sometimes referred to as a “Town Owned Event”.
