One fun feature is an interactive photo booth, where people of all ages and abilities can dress up and take pictures with traffic signs and safety messages.
Other activities include the following.
-Tuesday, Aug. 13: Children's Day – The focus is on child traffic safety and injury prevention, featuring a host of guest safety professionals.
-Wednesday, Aug. 14: Senior Citizen Day – Clackamas Fire District #1 presents on senior fire and fall prevention.
-Thursday, Aug. 15: Sign the Drive to Zero Pledge with the Board of County Commissioners at the Main Stage at 10 a.m. This is a pledge to drive safely out of care for everyone who shares the streets.
The fair runs from Tuesday through Saturday, Aug. 13-17, at the Clackamas County Event Center, located at 694 NE 4th Ave. in Canby.
