Orchard Manor is kicking off National Night Out with a "Public Safety Parade" tonight. 

Hundreds are expected to attend the event at the housing development.  Residents say they hope to strengthen neighborhood spirit while putting a stop to local crime.  Public safety officials will also be present to promote awareness and safety. 

"Crime is everywhere and drugs are everywhere, but I think if we come together in our community as a whole then a lot of that can be alleviated," said Debby Ball. 

Organizers will be bringing in a climbing wall and smokehouse for the kids.  Parents will also receive information on available safety services in the area.
