The Lake Charles Police Department is hosting a "Fun Day" for kids Thursday, June 14, 2018, at the Lake Charles Civic Center Coliseum, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event is FREE to the public and expected to draw hundreds of kids in the area, in "an effort designed to build trust and rapport between the Police Department and local youth", said an LCPD media release.

The LCPD "Fun Day" will have plenty of fun and games for the children, including animal balloons, face painting, fun jumps, train rides, sack races, trike races, and more provided by the City's Recreation and Parks employees. There will also be police motorcycles, cruisers, and an armored vehicle, SWAT vehicle, and patrol boat featured at the event.
