Kids and adults will learn safety tips from various departments like the state and local police. The National Guard will have their rock climbing wall up for the kids. There will be snow cones, popcorn, face painting, bouncy houses and games. This family event is free and open to everyone.

“It’s really important to have resources and to know what the resources are that are available in our local communities. It’s a chance for them to come out, and learn new things and try new activities and have lots of fun, while learning about ways to stay safe in their community, in their home, in schools, and it’s a wonderful opportunity for families to come out and have fun together, and to learn about how to be safe,” said Debby Walker, Jane Lew Lions Club Safety Fair Coordinator.
