The Sheriff’s Office has announced its official list of “block party” locations in the parish for the 34th Annual National Night Out Against Crime on Tuesday.

Each party will begin at 6 p.m. and last until around 9 p.m., and each will feature food, fun, and games.

The annual National Night Out Against Crime parade will take place in the Raceland area beginning at the U.S. Hwy. 90 Fire Station and continuing throughout the streets of the Sugar Land Subdivision.

Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies will be visiting each location to speak with area residents about neighborhood concerns.
