EAST LANSING, Mich. — The City of East Lansing’s National Night Out, Touch-a-Truck event will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 4 from 6-8 p.m. at the East Lansing Public Library (ELPL), 950 Abbot Road.

For young animal lovers, there will be an ELPD K9 officer and dog at the event as well as deputies and horses from the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office Mounted Unit.

WKAR's Curious Crew will also be at the event, offering interactive science activities, and many safety-oriented community organizations will be in attendance as well. Children are encouraged to come dressed in their superhero outfit to participate in a Superhero Obstacle Course.
