Needless to say, every- one needs to do as much as they can at home, in schools, day care centers, recreational programs, places of work and in communi- ties to address the issues. The theme for this year's event is "Gear Up for Safety." The 'Gear Up Games' will be a fun and educational safety experience that will teach childhood injury prevention by practical exercises. Participants will also learn from dynamic speakers, exhibits, pup- pet shows, costumed characters and demonstrations. Activities in- clude fingerprinting, safety town, clowns, hot air balloon, pony and little train rides, a petting zoo and youth entertainment. This year's event will also feature a magician whose presentation is titled "I Am a 10." He will instill strong, posi- tive feelings of self-esteem, self- worth and family values in his young audiences. Other activities include a 911 high demo, a lawn equipment safety skit, Millsboro's Fire Safe- ty House, children's garden, sev- eral rides, face painting and much more.
