The event has been themed, Emergency Preparedness and Awareness, by our public safety partners.

There will be emergency preparedness displays, a bicycle/scooter safety rodeo for the kids, a child safety-seat installation demonstration, face painting, metal detection scramble for the kids and a group glow stick walk. Following the event is a movie in the park, hosted by TVRPD.
“We had a great turnout last year, kids had a blast, and we got to know our community a little bit better,” said Budge.
The event is free to all. Free bicycle helmets for children participating in the bike safety rodeo and free hot dogs.
