Kingston: Photos from National Night Out

Hundreds of first responders from around the area were in Kingston for National Night Out.

At Silver Lake High School, kids and adults alike were all smiles for a hands-on learning experience that included a K-9 demo, motorcycle training, and numerous other vehicles.

“It’s kind of awesome that you have all these other towns helping us; fire departments, the Sheriff’s Department, State Police,” said Kingston Police Chief, Maurice Splaine. “It’s an awesome thing to get together with the people in the community and to be with them in a casual atmosphere.”

Splaine says it’s the 33rd year they’ve held a National Night Out in Kingston.

“This is a blast. Any time you can do community events, it’s a lot of fun,” said Kingston Fire Chief Mark Douglass. “You get out, you get to explain what you do to the community and just have an enjoyable night with them, it’s a great event.”

Braeden Quigley, a 12-year-old from Halifax says it was an awesome event.

“It was really nice seeing all of the police officers from other towns gathered together, because the full unity of the police officers, everyone coming around to honor them,” said Quigley. “Overall, it was really cool.”
