Kids bike safety events

If you are familiar with bike rodeos for kids, they generally have several stations and include some obstacle courses. I'm trying to see if there is enough interest in helping before I commit to having them at EarthFest, April 17 (at Pellissippi State), and in Townsend as part of a Child Safety Day event on May 15 (yes, that is the same day as Tour de Blount). Please let me know if you are interested, and which day you could help with. Thanks!
