Show Your Community and Civic Pride

For the first time, our neighborhood event will feature the #LovePlano Heart for neighbors to take photos and selfies with it along the parade route by the walking trail. Tag your photos #KingsRidgeHOA and #LovePlano when sharing images about National Night Out, and show your civic and Kings Ridge pride on your social media channels.

We’ll have complementary food and drinks, music, bounce houses, youth activities and fire engine visits for young children. The greenbelt will be lighted, so neighbors can get to know one another and stay outside well past dark.
