Celebrate the Kings Ridge neighborhood’s 20th Annual National Night Out parade and celebration as we showcase neighborhood awareness and stop crime before it happens.
Neighbors of all ages are invited to participate in this award winning event from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
This high-profile event, in partnership with the City of Plano, Plano Police and Plano Fire, showcase safety and crime prevention. It’s the largest event in our neighborhood’s history, and over the years attendance has ranged from 250 to more than 500.
Our 1/3 of a mile (short!) National Night Out parade lined with U.S. flags features decorated entries (have fun decorating bikes, scooters, wagons, dogs, etc. neighbors!) starts at 6:35 p.m! It involves neighbors, dogs on leashes, Plano Fire Engine 13, first responders and the Hebron High School drum line. Line up early near 6913 Crystal Falls – the middle of our neighborhood at Crystal Falls and Kings Manor.
The short parade travels north on Kings Manor, crosses Indian Creek and turns right on Cannon Falls and then right again on Beckworth to our phase two greenbelt park.
From 6:30 to 9 p.m. with overhead lighting, the phase 2 park nearest 6917 Traceland, we’ll all learn more about safety and crime prevention, enjoy 40 free pizzas from nearby Marco’s Pizza, munch on 225 free, pre-wrapped tacos from Rosa’s and free beverages (water, lemonade, beer) to stay hydrated. We’ll have a DJ, music, bounce houses and prizes for best decorated parade entries.
Host of the city’s largest HOA-sponsored National Night Out celebration since 2010, the Kings Ridge HOA is one of only two Plano neighborhoods to have earned the City of Plano’s BEST Neighborhoods Platinum level award based on criteria that includes a neighborhood’s work involving beauty, engagement, safety and cultivating a thriving community.
Your participation in Kings Ridge’s largest of its kind National Night Out celebration in Plano has helped us achieve such high honors, so plan to attend.

- Water jug refillers
- Bounce house supervisors
- Social committee flyer distributors
- End of evening break down crew
