2014 Lawrence Kids’ (Free) Bicycle Helmet Fair Scheduled for May 10

Bike helmets may be the “Gift of Life”. By choosing to wear a helmet, you will reduce your risk of a head injury from a crash by 85%!

To make that a reality for Lawrence children, on Saturday, May 10th, local businesses and organizations are sponsoring a free bicycle helmet fair and Family Fun Zone before the KU baseball and softball games. The events will be in the KU parking lot # 125 & 127 between the baseball and softball complexes.

The bicycle helmet fair will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Activities include a free helmet for children under the age of 14 who are accompanied by an adult, bike inspections and a safe ride course. Participants will learn about rules of the road, bicycle trail etiquette, booster seat safety, and bicycle and pool safety.

The Family Fun Zone will be open from noon to 2 p.m. and will include family-friendly inflatables, a face painter, Big Jay and Baby Jay, and music.

After the activities, you can cheer on KU’s baseball and softball teams at 2 p.m. Admission is free.
