We will begin with a take our community back march starting at 5:30 p.m. from Antioch Baptist Church, located at 605 WE Morton Ave. We will march to Covington Recreation Center. All city council members will be marching and we ask that all clergy, black and white, along with citizens all over the city, to come stand with us.

The program will feature numerous fun-filled activities. A number of community groups will be on hand to provide crime prevention, health information and safety information. This year's night out will feature area performers, children's activities, police demonstrations, and local talent.

There will be a memorial held for loved ones that have been lost to crime and lost to the penal system. Additionally, school supplies, free food, and an abundance of gift cards and giveaways will be given by your local merchants and the City of Opelika.
