Riverbank’s youngsters and their safety are the focus of activities at tonight’s Farmers Market, July 1. The Safety Night and Bicycle Rodeo runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Riverbank Community Center Park.

Featuring Riverbank Police Services deputies, local firefighters and other public safety workers, the evening is aimed at showing young bicyclists how to safely navigate common traffic situations laid out on a closed course for them to practice.

There will also be booths manned by members of local civic organizations providing information about their activities to families.

As usual, the market features fresh nuts, fruits, produce from local farmers and prepared foods available for purchase from vendors.

Entertainment on the stage tonight is scheduled to be provided by the Proper Steady Originals.

After sundown, the free movie feature is scheduled to be Despicable Me. Next week’s movie is set to be Despicable Me 2. The market offers a family-friendly movie each week, in the outdoors, to be enjoyed in the cooler night air.
