BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Neighborhoods across Boston came together on Monday for 'National Night Out,' a nationwide event that aims to get community members familiar with their local law enforcement and representatives.

WBZ's Karyn Regal visited Brighton for the local NNO there, where residents enjoyed bounce houses, live music, and free ice cream on Brighton Common. This year's event breaks a three-year hiatus from COVID-19, with more festivities planned for Tuesday.

Some law enforcement even took to the stage to show off their vocal chords, singing melodies for the people.

On Monday, Boston neighborhoods Brighton, Hyde Park, Roslindale, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, and Roxbury held their National Night Outs. For Tuesday, East Boston, Chinatown, the South End, North End, Southie, and Dorchester are set to have theirs.

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu attended NNO and urged the importance of a united community.

"In order to make everyone safe, everyone has to be part of our community," Wu said.

Suffolk County District Attorney Kevin Hayden had similar sentiments.

"We need to constantly lift up our communities, lift up the members of the communities— let them know how much we love and support them," Hayden said.
