Ten thousand communities and military bases worldwide will participate in the event. North Charleston and Georgetown are two of the participating cities.

Similar events will occur at the same time in other North Charleston neighborhoods, including Forest Hills I, Charleston Farms, North Charleston Old Village, Woodlands, Coosaw Commons, and Indigo on the Ashley.

Over 33 million people are expected to participate in National Night Out this year.
