TEMPLE, TX — The McLane Children's Medical Center hosted it's 14th annual McLane Children's Safe Kids Day event to help remind parents of ways they can keep their children safe.

On Saturday, the event has music, food and informative booths from state troopers, police and many more to spread awareness.

For one mom, Kelli Kelemen, she says it was the perfect event to take her five children.

"I stopped by the child safety seat table and I enjoyed the information. I have five kids from ages 10 to 2, so I have kids from infant seats to booster seats so it was a good table to stop by and get information," said Kelemen.

Ken Roberts with TxDOT says spreading awareness is the best way to stop accidents.

"It's about being safe, 'Be safe and drive smart' and 'be safe, be seen,' all of those are a part of our campaign. Anything and everything we can do to educate the public on the hazards involved with traveling is important," said Roberts.
