Sit behind the wheel of a patrol car, marvel at the size of a snow plow, or jump aboard a fire truck. Do this and more at the Village of Kronenwetter’s National Night Out starting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 2 in Towering Pines Park.

Firefighters, police officers, and our favorite parks crew will be on hand to give you a tour of their vehicle, explain their job, and shake your hand. 

“This event brings our community together by giving our citizens a fun and relaxed setting where they can interact and get to know our staff and first responders,” Police Chief Terry McHugh said, in a news release.

Attending the event will be the members and vehicles from the Kronenwetter Fire Department, Kronenwetter Police Department, Kronenwetter Parks Department, Marathon County SWAT, and Riverside Fire District.
