DELRAY BEACH — Exhibitors and vendors are being invited to participate in a community safety fair on Saturday, Dec. 3, at Lake Ida Park, 950 NW Ninth St., Delray Beach.
The fair will offer a range of safety services for the entire family, organizers said.
“We have information on how to stay safe in your home, during recreational activities, Internet and cell phone safety for kids,” said Regina Simmons, president of 100 Black Women of South Palm Beach County, one of the event’s organizers.
“We will have information on health and wellness, investment fraud prevention, car and driver safety, pet and wildlife concerns, and more,” she said.
Nonprofit organizations and civic groups are also being invited to promote their organizations with a booth or table.
With more than 20 booths and displays, attendees will receive information and giveaways such as drawings for gas cards and other valuable prizes.
Games, clowns, puppets, balloons, food and refreshments will be featured also, along with presentations by the Delray Beach police department’s K-9 and SWAT teams and other specialized units.
The Florida Highway Patrol will showcase a safety demonstration called "Rollover Simulator" to illustrate the importance of wearing seat belts in a vehicle during a rollover.
This event provides a wide selection of safety information, far beyond the traditional crime prevention tips that might be expected from a police department, organizers said.
“Budgets are tight for people these days. We are pleased to be able to bring all these services and resources together and provide them to the community at no cost,” Simmons said.
Admission to the fair is an unwrapped new toy, which will be donated to the Delray Beach Police Christmas toy drive program.
The event is being sponsored by the Delray Beach Police Department, Rearcy’s Ribshack, the Delray Beach Tribune and Knights of Pythagoras Mentoring Network.
