Tuesday night, neighbors and law enforcement agencies across the nation will come together to take a stand against crime.

It's all part of the 31st annual National Night Out, held every year on the first Tuesday of August. The event encourages people to help in crime prevention and let criminals know neighborhoods are fighting back.

Tuesday night, cities and neighborhoods across the Upstate and western North Carolina are holding events, offering free food, music and activities for kids.
