Each community will host its own block party that includes activities such as cookouts, moon bounces, giveaways, carnival games, prizes and a chance to spend time with neighbors. McGruff the Crime Dog will visit several of the scheduled block parties, where he will spread his anti-crime and anti-drug message..."
