North Charleston Fire Museum Celebrates Anniversary with 4th Annual Bike Rodeo and Safety Day

The North Charleston and American LaFrance Fire Museum and Educational Center will celebrate its fourth anniversary on Saturday, April 30, 2011 with the Annual Safe Kids Bike Rodeo and Safety Day.

The Fire Museum opened its doors to the public April 28, 2007 and since that time has hosted over 110,000 visitors. As a thank you to the community, the North Charleston Fire Museum, in conjunction with Trident Area Coalition of Safe Kids, will host a full day of family fun activities to entertain while educating to prevent accidental childhood injury.

Children will receive a FREE new bike helmet and can take part in free jump castles, a climbing wall, music and water games.

Snoopy, McGruff the Crime Dog and even Charlie The RiverDog will be in attendance. Guests can visit over 30 different vendors and booths, watch vehicle extrication demonstrations by the North Charleston Fire Department, the South Carolina Highway Patrol roll over simulator and North Charleston Police Department Bike Team exhibitions.
Children can also navigate their way through the bicycle obstacle course after receiving a free bike inspection and tune up. Bring your own bike or use one of the free bikes available for check out.

Attendees can cool off in the museum and enjoy FREE admission for the entire family. The Bike Rodeo runs from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm and the Fire Museum will be open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm with the last admission at 4:00 pm on Saturday, April 30, 2011.
