The Boston Police Department district serving Allston and Brighton will host its 15th annual “Child Safety Day” this month.

The event will be held at the District 14 police station at 301 Washington St. on Sunday, May 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to a flyer.

The event will focus on bike safety in support of Bay State Bike Week and will feature a bike rodeo, an obstacle course, bike safety tips, and safety fittings for bikes and helmets.

Prizes, including bikes, helmets, cycling accessories and T-shirts, will be given out.

There will be ice cream, kosher hot dogs, drinks, healthy snacks, a DJ, a moonwalk and the mascots of Boston College and Boston University.

The Retired Boston Police Officers Association will also offer their “Code Blue Child Safe ID” program, in which children can be fingerprinted, photographed and have DNA samples collected.

The city’s emergency medical services department will provide expert child safety seat installations. Members of the Boston College Eagle EMS will perform safety demonstrations.
