Shomrim Host Carnival at 18th Ave. Park to Register Kids’ Bikes and Scooters
By Yehudit Garmaise
The parents and children of Boro Park can start off their week by biking or scooting over to 18th Avenue Park, at 18th Avenue and 56th Street, from 1 to 6pm to jump on moonbounces, go on exciting rides, eat ice cream, and get up close with animals at a petting zoo.
At 2pm, Shomrim volunteers, NYPD officers, and askanim will begin to register kids’ modes of transportation, on which they will get around more and more, as soon as school is out.
Registering kids’ bikes, scooters, and hoverboards helps police to track items that are lost or stolen, said a Shomrim supporter, who added that the neighborhood kids should, “Come enjoy, have fun, and protect their wheels.”
In addition, Shomrim reminds parents to ensure their children are always wearing name tags with parents’ phone numbers.
“Name tags help children who are lost, chas v’shalom, to be identified and found right away,” a Shomrim supporter said.
