Both cops and kids will take to the field starting at 12:45 p.m. for a pair of athletic events. First, the Cops for Kids Kickball Game will take place, followed by the Cops For Kids Softball game at 2 p.m.
In addition to the events, there will be a bicycle helmet giveaway, as well as bicycle inspections and a repair station. Cyclists can register their bikes and there will be safety and obstacle courses.
T-shirts will be given to participants of the games, along with refreshments. All events will take place at the Parkway Oval near Bronx Street and Consulate Drive in the village.
