This FREE event takes place at Union Park in Des Moines where the Heritage Carousel stands.  Each year, thousands of children and adults enjoy a variety of fun, family activities.  Throughout the evening, there are inflatables, carousel rides, stage entertainment, clowns, food, and educational information for families. Everything is free and 2018 will mark the 16th year of this event!

Safe Kids Greater Des Moines is part of "Safety Street" and promotes childhood injury prevention at the event. Each year we provide 400 free bicycle helmets to children, provide education on proper helmet use, and properly fit each helmet on each head! If your child needs a new helmet, this is the place to be!

You'll also be able to find us by the wading pool this year! Stop by to learn about water safety and pick up a free copy of the new book from Safe Kids Worldwide and Nationwide Insurance: Clifford Takes a Swim.

We look forward to seeing you there!

A special thanks to all of our sponsors, including Polk County Betterment and Prairie Meadows, for the continued support! This event would not be possible without your generous support!
