The humidity broke long enough to make for a spectacular National Night Out as residents, town officials, business people and local organizations gathered together under the stars.
Organized by SRO Officer Keith Wester with the help of SRO Officer Bill Wilde, National Night Out included rides, amusements, live music from A Taste of Honey, face painting, ice cream, cotton candy and more.
The New Milford Fire Department provided free hot dogs courtesy of The Dog Waggin and offered rides in the bucket of the ladder truck.
The Bergen County Sheriff's Department and Bergen County Police Department were on hand to demonstrate their apparatus and K-9 unit.
The New Milford Auxiliary Police was on hand at the field, directing traffic and helping families safely cross River Road.
