The City of Alvin Participates in National Night Out

Join communities across Texas in the 28th annual "National Night Out" this coming Tuesday October 4th. National Night Out helps strengthen community ties and it’s partnership with the the local police department.

Residents in Alvin and communities across Texas are invited to turn on their porch lights, lock the door, and spend the evening outside with their neighbors from 7pm to 10pm.
