- Free Drawing for bikes, skateboards and scooters
- Safety booths to help educate kids on being safe while having fun
- Give-aways with FREE snow cones
The kiddos will also have a chance to see up close the Eagle Air Med’s helicopter, Alamosa Fire Department firetruck and San Luis Valley Health Ambulance . So come and join the fun, get a new, up-to-date safe helmet for summer fun and remind your child about safe habits for outside activities!
