Safe Celebrations

Picnic Day is a family-friendly open house with many fun events

If you’re planning to have your own Picnic Day celebration, the following tips can help make it a fun and safe event.

  • Let your neighbors know you are going to have an event and give them your phone number so they can call you if there are any problems.
  • Keep your event to people you know. It is better to have it inside or in your backyard to avoid unwanted guests.
  • Have a sober friend watch out for everyone and respond to any situation that may arise.
  • Serve food and non-alcoholic beverages.
  • Provide safe transportation for guests who have been drinking.
  • Know your responsibilities and liabilities as a host.
