Safe Kids Super Saturday promotes good health and safety among children. The first 250 children, ages 4 through 12, who complete the "Safety Circle Challenge" at center court inside the Mall, will receive a free tee shirt. The event will feature a drive-through child safety seat check with information about the new South Carolina Child Passenger Safety laws covering car seat safety. Children will also have the opportunity to interact with the STAR team, a helicopter, fire truck and emergency vehicles.

The Adult Wellness Celebration will feature free health screenings for adults including cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar checks. Multiple organizations will participate with giveaways and information about the many community resources available.
