ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – A Southeast Rochester neighborhood was overrun with first responders Tuesday night, but it wasn’t for an emergency.
Hundreds of people packed the parking lot at Franklin Elementary for the fourth Safe City Night.
Tonight’s activities got kids up close to police cars and fire trucks, robots and other equipment. There was even a chance to pet a police dog.
RPD says almost 2,000 people attended the previous three safe city nights. They expected more than 500 people at Tuesday night’s event.
There are two more Safe City Night events this summer. The next is on July 30th at Watson Field, and the last will be on August 20th at Bishop Elementary. Both events start at 6 p.m.
