SALEM - The 6th annual "National Night Out" at Waterworth Memorial Park will begin at 3:30 p.m. July 3.
The event is hosted by the Salem Perry Township Crime Watch and President Cara Milhoan said it is the organization's annual fund raiser.
"This is the only thing we have to raise money for ourselves," she said.
The event will see the addition of hand-cranked cars for children to ride.
Along with children's entertainment, there will be three bands performing and a classic car, truck and motorcycle cruise-in across from the duck pond.
The show is free and people can bring their own canopies.
The featured car will be the appearance of Mayberry's Barney Fife and his 1963 Ford, driven to the show by Todd Beckett of Mansfield.
The entrance to the car cruise is by East 8th Street into the park.
Kid's entertainment includes a bounce house donated by the Real Life Assembly of God, a petting zoo with llamas, goats and pony rides from Pony Tails Petting Zoo, and the Aut Mori Grotto Clowns from Columbiana will appear, Milhoan said.
"We're all ready to go," she said Tuesday, adding that the Fun Factory is providing a dunk tank and Blazing Entertainment form Niles is providing the sound.
The three bands will begin at 5 p.m. with Free Wheelin, a Salem band performing from 5 to 6 p.m.
Milhoan said Free Wheelin is Stormin' Norman Shaw's band and Night Moves, another Salem band, will be spotlighted from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m., followed by the Cowboy Up Band from Salem that will be center stage from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.
The food concession will be run by the Real Life Assembly of God that is also donating the hot dogs and French fries and will have face painting.
