Rock climbing, food, games and a planned military helicopter landing are some of the highlights set for this year's celebration of National Night Out in Teaneck.
The Aug. 7 event seeks to raise awareness for crime prevention efforts, boost neighborhood spirit along with police and community relations.

The Votee Park event, described as a "town-wide block party," will include give-a-ways, displays from emergency responders, music and fun. A military drug eradication unit helicopter is also planned to land at the park.
