PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) - Cold weather has made officials with the city of Plainview to move its annual Cops and Kids event to 1-6 p.m. on Sunday.
The event was originally scheduled to happen on Saturday, according to a City of Plainview news release. The event is sponsored by the Plainview Police Department and serves as a community event to engage children with local police.
During the event children will have the opportunity to play basketball, volleyball, go through an obstacle course and many other fun children-centered activities. Hot dogs, chips and other foods will also be served at the event.
This year's event will also include a prayer and the singing of the national anthem by Wendell Dunlap, Plainview's mayor. There will also be a butterfly release and a speech that is centered around children's mental health.
"The event continues to grow thanks to our volunteers, sponsors and the community," Julio De La Garza, patrolman/school resource officer and event chair, said in the release. "We are excited about this year's event. It is a great time for the community and the police force to not only get to know one another but just to have some fun."
