The annual Night to Unite event in Faribault will be the evening of August 1. Formerly called National Night Out, the event hopes to bring communities together. Each year, there are typically more than a dozen registered parties throughout Faribault. The block parties will each receive visits from local law enforcement members, city staff, and several elected officials. The block parties often involve kids games, inflatables, face paint, and grill outs or pizza, and the chance to get to know your neighbors.

If your neighborhood does not have a block party, or you want to stop by the community party, everyone is invited to check out fun and food at the Buckham Center at 11 Division St. E. in Faribault. From 5-7:30PM, on Tuesday, August 2, everyone is invited to celebrate Night to Unite at the Buckham Center. The event includes live music, kids games, and more. The city of Faribault vehicles will also be there to check out. This free event also will have free refreshments. Additionally, there will be a bouncy house and crime prevention mascots.
