Davidson County, NC-- With school out and more families looking to have fun on the water, one company wanted to send a message about safety.
Parents and kids were invited to come to High Rock Lake Saturday to have some fun and learn about water safety.
The free event comes two weeks after a boating accident that killed a mother and her child who were from Guilford County.
Alcoa hosted the event at High Rock's Pebble Beach swim area and gave away 100 life jackets to children who attended. Organizers also had food and other freebies for those who attended.
Parents and their children were able to see the patrol boats used by the Davidson County Sheriff's Office to patrol the lake.
The safety event was held on High Rock and Badin Lakes. Both lakes are owned by Alcoa.
