Youth safety fair set in San Luis, Ariz.
SAN LUIS, Ariz. — The fourth annual Youth Safety Fair here will treat children and teens to some recreational fun plus some commonsense tips for crime and accident prevention.
Wednesday's fair, sponsored by the San Luis police, fire and parks and recreation departments, is expected to bring about 2,000 youths to Joe Orduno Park. From 1 to 5 p.m., they can learn about law enforcement, take their turns on a water slide and enjoy refreshments.
“The goal is to educate them about the importance of safety and let them meet police officers and learn about the work they perform,” said San Luis Police Officer Luis Marquez, one of the coordinators.
“There will be information about the use of seat belts and bicycle helmets. They will be able to see patrol cars, other vehicles and the K-9 units. It's a very full event that involves about 30 different agencies.”
The fair, geared for first through eighth grade, will take place at the gymnasium and baseball field at Joe Orduno Park.
