Super Safety Saturday combines family fun with educational activities in our four Safety Pit Stop areas: Touch a Truck, Health & Safety Fair, Family Fun Zone, and Sheriff’s Safety Town. The first 500 children to visit and participate in all of the Safety Pit Stops with their supplied “Pit Stop to Safety Pass” will receive a goody bag at the end of their visit.

At Touch a Truck, vehicles of all kinds will be on display for adults and children alike to experience first-hand. Get a close-up view of fire, police, and rescue vehicles, heavy equipment, all kinds of recreational vehicles, and more!

Booths at our Health & Safety Fair will provide information and interactive experiences to adults and children about a variety of topics including healthcare, wellness, and safety for fitness, sports, playtime, and other everyday life activities. Our Family Fun Zone will feature local entertainment, fitness classes, and bounce houses as well as special appearances by kid-friendly characters!

Explore and learn about severe weather in the Sheriff’s Safety Town Fire & Weather House, open for tours every 30 minutes. Children are encouraged to bring their own bikes and helmets and pedal through the Safety Town Neighborhood to practice the rules of the road. A free child seat safety fitting will also be held on-site courtesy of the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office. Parents won’t want to miss this opportunity to make sure their children’s car seats are installed correctly!
