Pedal Power gives kids the chance to stay active despite the snow

Posted:
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

Kids in Hannibal were able to keep active Saturday morning, despite the snowfall at an event called Pedal Power. 

The Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department opened the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center from 9-11 a.m. to youngsters ages 2-6 with pedal-powered vehicles.

Kids drove their tricycles through courses created with cones.

Organizers say the event is a way to get kids active during the winter months.

"I've had toddlers. I know these kids need to burn off energy and there is not much out there," said Mary Lynne Richards of the Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department. 

Richards says they may hold a similar event again in the future.
