The annual Bacon Street Festival, a free community event in Biddeford offered as part of the National Night Out campaign each August, has received its ninth award from the National Association of Town Watch in the eleven-year history of the event.
The goal of the National Night Out campaign is to promote police-community relationships to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. During the first week of August each year, 16,000 participating cities, military bases, and universities nationwide host events that bring law enforcement officers and community members together. Biddeford was among only 1% of the 2018 participants to receive an award for their event and is the only city in Maine to have been recognized by the campaign to date.
