Bring the whole family to walk our kid-sized streets (6 laps = 1 mile), run races, or ride bikes and scooter around our miniature town. Bring your children’s bikes, scooters or skates. We will help you figure out how many calories you burn, so you can enjoy a guilt-free turkey day. With our buildings, streets and traffic lights, Safety City is the perfect location for this pre-Thanksgiving event. Admission is free. Call (806) 767-2712 or (806) 775-2690 for more information.

Don’t think you need to pre-burn calories? Check out these numbers*:
 • 4 oz of turkey (no skin) = 190 calories
 • 1 cup bread stuffing = 355 calories
 • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce = 209 calories
 • 1 piece of pumpkin pie = 323 calories
 • 1 average thanksgiving dinner = 3,000 calories
 • A Thanksgiving dinner without worrying about how many calories you eat = PRICELESS
