The afternoon will start off with a service vehicle parade from the Beaver Falls high school to the Geneva campus. There will be a K-9 demonstration, Taser gun education, bicycle safety lessons and more. Fire trucks, ambulances and police cars will be on display for kids to see and sit inside.
A moon bounce and snow cone machine will be available for children, and hamburgers and hotdogs grilled up for purchase.

There will be a raffle of prizes donated by local businesses and organizations, and all the money raised will be donated to charity.
Beaver Falls Police Chief Charles “Mick” Jones is excited about this event and sees community gathering like this as strength for Beaver County. He says, “A community is only as strong as the people who are in it."
