The annual Night to Unite event in Faribault will be the evening of August 1. Formerly called National Night Out, the event hopes to bring communities together. Each year, there are typically more than a dozen registered parties throughout Faribault. The block parties will each receive visits from local law enforcement members, city staff, and several elected officials. The block parties often involve kids games, inflatables, face paint, and grill outs or pizza, and the chance to get to know your neighbors.
