The Mt. Lebanon Police Department, in cooperation with the Bethel Park Police Department and Allstate Insurance, are having a Public Safety Fun Day on Saturday, September 19th (rain date: September 20th) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the campus of the Bethel Park High School.
The day includes free activities for the whole family.
Kids of any age can participate in the bicycle rodeo, and mechanics from Pro Bikes will be there to inspect bikes and give maintenance and safety tips. Every kid who participates in the bike rodeo gets a free raffle ticket—the winners get to pick out their own bikes at a Pro Bikes.
Learn about vehicle safety and practice your skills by checking out Children’s Hospital’s safe driving simulator. Runners and walkers can get safety tips in the tent sponsored by Fleet Feet.
Little ones (and not so little ones) will love checking out all the public safety vehicles, including police cars, fire trucks and ambulances. Several bounce houses will be on-site courtesy of Allstate Insurance. And everyone with a belly will love the food truck roundup with several area food trucks participating.
Everything is free except one event: the Championship Cornhole Tournament. Sixty-four teams will compete in a double-elimination bracket. Entry fee is $40 a team with all proceeds going to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. Registration starts at 9 with the tourney beginning at 10. However, since we can have only 64 teams, it could fill up quickly. A link to register online can be found by clicking HERE.
The two people on the first place team will each receive an iPad mini and a set of custom cornhole boards. Second places winners will get an Amazon Kindle Fire and set of cornhole boards. Third places winners will get cornhole boards. Everyone who enters the tournament will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a set of cornhole boards and bags.
