Greenbelt, Maryland was one of the many towns and cities that took part in the annual National Night Out on August 2. The Greenbelt one was held simultaneously in two different locations. I went to the first one that was held at Beltway Plaza Mall.

The Beltway Plaza event was held outside in the back parking lot.

Free food was given away at that event but I didn’t go for it because, as you can see in the next photograph, the lines were so long. In fact they ran out of free food before the event ended.

There was even a skateboarding team who did all kinds of tricks.

I was given this cardboard truck along with coupons and other activities from Silver Diner. I later gave it to Makerspace 125 to place among other toys they have lying around for kids.

I went to the other event that was held in Roosevelt Center, located in Greenbelt’s historic district. Compared with the Beltway Plaza event, the one of Roosevelt Center was more low key. There were children who ran around the open air plaza while tables from local businesses had literature for people to pick up.
