What happens at Spring Into Safety Kids Day?
Organizers will give away more than 1,000 bicycle helmets, courtesy of Flathead Electric's Roundup for Safety program. Remember to bring your bikes from home for a maintenance check and to try out the road safety course hosted by Montana Highway Patrol. Flathead County will be providing free car seat safety checks. There also will be kids' games, a bouncy house, face painting and other fun activities for the family. Enjoy a snack from one of the local food trucks.
Another highlight of the event is the presence of the A.L.E.R.T. and Two Bear Air helicopters and crews, as well as local police, fire, emergency services, and search and rescue. You can take photos with the crew members, sit inside these cool rigs and learn what the professional safety leaders do in our community.
