The City of Kalamazoo and Kzoo Parks will host an open house event on Friday, July 9 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the parking lot at Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety (KDPS) Headquarters located at 150 E Crosstown Pkwy in Kalamazoo. This is a rescheduled event that was postponed at the end of May.
The event will include equipment demonstrations from public safety staff including a fire engine. Children are encouraged to bring their bicycles and helmets to the event to get them fitted by public safety officers.
At 7 p.m. Zootopia - chosen by popular vote through an online poll - will be shown on the Kzoo Parks digital video screen in the parking lot. Attendees can bring blankets and chairs to watch the movie and there will also be a limited number of drive-in spaces available for cars. Kzoo Parks will also offer giveaways matching the theme of the movie.
This event is free, and all community members are welcome.
