Kids Safety Expo in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WGGB) — The Basketball Hall of Fame was home to a kids safety expo Saturday afternoon.

Several hundreds of children showed up to the hall of fame, where they were able to ride the race car simulator, get a free bicycle helmet and even pet a snake!

There was plenty of fun to be had at the event but education was the primary focus of the day’s activities.

Michelle Abdow, President of Market Mentors told ABC40, “It’s all about the kids. We want to educate children on how to be safe, whether or not they’re with mom and dad.”

Whether it was learning about car safety, bike safety, or even animal safety there was plenty of educational value for families to take home with them.
