Junior Service League to host 7th Annual Super Safety Saturday


The Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier, in conjunction with Sheriff’s Safety Town, will host the 7th Annual Super Safety Saturday on Saturday, September 24 from 9 a.m. to noon at 8910 Jewella Ave., Shreveport.

Super Safety Saturday combines family fun with educational activities in our four Safety Pit Stop areas: (1) Touch a Truck, (2) Health & Safety Fair, (3) Family Fun Zone, and (4) Sheriff’s Safety Town. The first 500 children to participate in all of the Safety Pit Stops will receive a goody bag at the end of their visit.

At Touch a Truck, vehicles of all kinds will be on display for adults and children alike to experience first-hand. Get a close-up view of fire, police, and rescue vehicles, heavy equipment, all kinds of recreational vehicles, and more! This year there will even be a helicopter to explore.

Booths at our Health & Safety Fair will provide information and interactive experiences to adults and children about a variety of topics including healthcare, wellness, and safety for fitness, sports, playtime, and other everyday life activities.

The Family Fun Zone will feature carnival games, local entertainment, and fitness classes, as well as special appearances by kid-friendly characters.

Explore and learn about severe weather in the Sheriff’s Safety Town Fire & Weather House open for tours every 30 minutes.

Children are encouraged to bring their own bike and helmet and pedal through the Safety Town neighborhood to practice the rules of the road.

A free child seat safety fitting will also be held on-site courtesy of the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s office. Parents won’t want to miss this opportunity to make sure their children’s car seats are installed correctly.
