Night to Unite took place on August 6, 2019 with more than 150 registered block parties taking place in all parts of Blaine. Night to Unite promotes community building and crime prevention. Neighbors gather together in driveways, parks, and backyards. Just the simple act of being together can help prevent crime in a neighborhood, because neighbors start to look out for each other more after spending time together.

The Blaine Police Department along with partners from SBM Fire, Blaine Public Works Department, and the Minnesota State Patrol were able to visit more than 90 percent of the parties in Blaine. Night to Unite takes place every year on the first Tuesday in August.
