Last week my lovely co-author Heather posted an article about Safetyville USA and mentioned some fun events coming up. Well, we thought that one special event in particular deserved another mention. So, here it is!
I bet you didn’t know that October is Fire Safety month. With everything going on in October, I can see how it might get lost among the excitement and preparations for Halloween. However, fire safety information is SO important for our kids to know. Thank goodness for Safetyville! You can always count on them to help parents out in teaching our kids about safety!
Come on down with the kids on Saturday, October 8th for the 1st Annual Firefighter Chili Cookoff. From 12pm until 4pm your kids will experience an educational and fun-filled afternoon with firefighters from all over the region competing for the best chili. With local celebrity judges, exciting fire demos, interactive events, learning stations, helicopter landing, antique fire display, door prizes, raffles and food your kids are bound to have a great time while not even being aware that they are receiving an education in fire safety. I love these kinds of events!
Admission prices are $5 per person and FREE for kids 0-8 years old.
