There will be quite a bit to see Saturday at the Prince William County Fairgrounds including the U.S. Coast Guard Honor Guard, monster truck demonstrations, skydivers, magicians and antique cars.
There will also be food, music, live demonstrations by police and firefighters and interactive educational displays for children and their parents
And it’s all free.
The Prince William Police Department invites the public to attend the Drug Abuse Resistance Education Day between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at 10624 Dumfries Road, said Officer Sherrie Farley, of the Prince William police juvenile bureau.
The foundation of the D.A.R.E. Program is to teach children to choose to avoid drugs and violence, Farley said.
“If we can teach kids to make good choices, they’ll be successful in anything that they do,” Farley said.
The day should be fun filled.
“What better things do they have to do on a Saturday,” Farley said.
The police will also offer a free child safety seat check up between 9 and 11 a.m. Saturday at the Prince William Hospital at 8700 Sudley Road, said 1st Sgt Kim Chinn Prince William police spokeswoman.
Trained professionals from the Prince William Community Safe Kids Coalition, which includes members from the Prince William police, fire and rescue and hospital nurses, will answer parents’ safety seat questions.
