Planning a National Night Out event? Register now as important deadlines are approaching

This year, National Night Out is Tuesday, Aug. 2, and if you’re planning a neighborhood gathering, there are important deadlines for registering your event with the City and for blocking off your street. The theme for 2011 NNO is "Back to Basics: Neighbors Getting to Know Neighbors!"

Use this checklist to plan your National Night Out celebration:

Each event organizer will receive Mystery Point Passes for Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America. Each Mystery Point pass is worth a single ride, or a day of rides or an entire season of rides. And if you register your NNO event by Tuesday, July 19, you will be entered into a drawing for other door prizes donated by Minneapolis businesses.
