The evening – packed with exciting demonstrations, engaging exhibits and just plain fun – is made possible with support from Island Palm Communities, U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii and its Directorate of Emergency Services.

Families can look forward to visiting with the Federal Fire Department and climb aboard and explore its big trucks. Also, check out the Honolulu Police Department’s very cool D.A.R.E. vehicle and the U.S. Coast Guard’s rescue boat.

The Military Police and its K-9 Unit, McGruff the Crime Dog, and Eddie the Eagle also are part of the fun.

Be sure to stop by all the booths for great information and activities, including the Keiki I.D. Booth. Cyclists are encouraged to ride their bikes over and test their skills at the DES Bike Rodeo Course.

Topping off the festivities are giant inflatables, mechanical stuffed animals for kids to ride, face-painting, whimsical balloons, free hot dogs, pizza, popcorn and cotton candy.
The event runs through 7 p.m.
