TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – One of Wabash Valley’s most popular nights was enjoyed by many after being canceled the past couple of years.
Wabash Valley Night Out took place at Fairbanks Park this evening. Those who attended were able to visit with local law enforcement agencies, and volunteer organizations. Families also had the opportunity to watch several different demonstrations, receive free school supplies, and a free meal.
Terre Haute Police Chief Shawn Keen said it’s a great opportunity for the community to meet the law enforcement agencies.
“We haven’t been able to do this the last couple of years because of COVID and other restrictions. So, we’re excited to be able to do this again,” Keen said. “It gives us an opportunity to meet with the public outside our roles as law enforcement or firefighters, and just have some enjoyable time while we get to relate to them on a different level.”
Keen says they’re already looking forward to next year’s event.
