Families can have a fun day while also learning how to keep their children safe at an event in Sturgeon Bay. The third annual Safe Kids Day will be put on by the Door County Department of Public Health on August 17th at the Door County Fairgrounds. Safe Kids Day will have a number of different booths each teaching about preventing injury. The Door County Silent Sports Alliance will have a booth on bike safety and the Door County Sheriff’s Department will be talking about firearm safety. Chelsea Smies, health educator at the Door County Department of Public Health, says this event is designed for kids to have fun and keep them from getting hurt in the future.
A number of emergency vehicles will be on hand to keep children entertained. An Eagle Three Helicopter will land at 11 AM to noon. Safe Kids Day is free to enter and food and drinks will be available to buy that will benefit 4-H programs in Door County. The event will last from 10 AM to 2 PM.
