It’s not just about beads, kids can also score a free bike helmet this weekend at the Gasparilla Children’s Parade bike safety rodeo.

From 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 18 kids can learn about bicycle and pedestrian safety along the parade route between Rome and Dakota avenues. Kids can use loaner bikes to cycle through the safety course to practice traffic skills.

While supplies last, participating children will be fitted with a new, free bicycle helmet to keep.

Other activities are planned with the parade scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. and conclude at 7 p.m. with a fireworks display. 

All events are free to attend.
