The 2021 “National Night Out,” a collaboration between the DeRidder Police Department and the Beauregard Sheriff's Office, will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3 at the Beauregard Parish Fairgrounds in DeRidder

As part of the National Night Out the DeRidder Police Department along with the City of DeRidder and Beauregard Sheriff's Office created the find “Nat” game. 

Last year 'Where's Nat' was held virtually, but this year it is a walking and driving hunt! 

'Where's Nat' Scavenger Hunt is open for all ages to play. 

The hunt can be completed any time between July 19- Aug 2. 

Download the app Turf Hunt to participate.

Scan the QR code on the flyer or enter code NNO21. 

Participants will start at the DeRidder Police Department and read the clues to get to the next place. 

This is a driving and walking scavenger hunt, but you can walk most of the downtown area.

Participants will earn door prizes as well as the fun of the hunt in the beautiful fresh air of the City. 

Participants can earn a max of 8 door prize tickets if you complete the entire hunt. 

Bring your phone to NNO on August 3 and go to the Door Prize Tent to receive tickets for playing.

“National Night Out” is part of a campaign by the National Association of Town Watch, a neighborhood safety advocacy group. Events are held in communities around the country each year on the first Tuesday in August and are aimed at building and strengthening police-community partnerships.

National Night Out is a free, family event -- for young and old -- with games, a tug-of-war competition, car show, food trucks, live music, face painting, door prizes, an obstacle course, maze, military armored vehicle static display, dunk tank, military working dog demonstration, resource fair, a performance by the Dixie Darlins and a fireworks finale.
