CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WWBT) - The Chesterfield County Police Department’s National Night Out will look a little different this year, between date changes and social distancing guidelines.

The celebration will take place on Oct. 6, delayed from the first week of August due to COVID-19.

Instead of a traditional block party, police are encouraging neighborhoods to make signs or banners, have an art contest, organize vehicle parades or hold a virtual party.

Residents can register for the event at this link.

Chesterfield police will host a free National Night Out Kick-Off event from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 19 at the Westchester Commons Shopping Center. The event will feature live entertainment, vendors and first responders. The Chesterfield Food Bank will collect donations at the event.
