Former NFL star and Highland Park native Reggie McKenzie had to go into his own pocket to have the city-owned field mowed in time for an annual youth football camp. The field in the Detroit enclave was overgrown with nearly waist-high weeds and grass about a week before the 3-day camp started in June. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)

(WLNS) – Tuesday evening many communities have events planned and some may include barbeques, bounce-houses, and family-friendly entertainment.

It’s National Night Out and it’s a celebration of unity to bridge the gap between police departments and the community. It’s also an opportunity for neighborhoods to get together and have fun.

Here’s a list of celebrations in Mid-Michigan:
• Delhi Township- 5pm-7pm Veterans Memorial Gardens
• Meridian Township Police Department – 6pm-9pm
• St. Johns City Park – 6pm-8pm
• East Lansing Public Library – 6pm-8pm
• Jackson – Loomis Park 6pm-8pm

Each event is planned for the people who live in the neighborhood near the celebration.
