Kids can learn how to play it safe starting August 24 when Kirkwood Safety Town returns to The Magic House. Co-created by The Magic House and the City of Kirkwood, this interactive exhibit is designed to educate the region's youngest residents about safety. Kirkwood Safety Town features a child-sized neighborhood including a fire station, police station, electric company, farmers market, park, house, and even a train station!
Kids can hop on trikes to travel through the city, learning important traffic, electric and water safety skills along the way. From navigating a railroad crossing to practicing a fire drill, Safety Town also features a bike helmet-fitting station and scheduled visits from community helpers, including firefighters and police officers.
Safety Town is open through September 22 and is included with admission to The Magic House.
