The rain held off at Bayfront for a fun community get together on Thursday.

Families filled the park for the annual Kids, Cops, and Cars event put on by Duluth Police.

It showcases multiple law enforcement and first responder vehicles for the community to explore.

Police said it’s also an opportunity for the public to engage with officers from surrounding law enforcement and first responder agencies.

Lt. Dave Drozdowski told us, “A big part of it is so the kids get comfortable around the officers, so they get to know that the officers are just like you or I just feel comfortable around them. And just to see the type of equipment that they might see out in the community and just getting close up with it and get hands on with that equipment and see, it’s really not scary as some people think it’s just it’s just like any other piece of equipment out there.”

There were also a couple of rounds of tug-of-war between the kids and the officers.
