Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Safety Festival has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 24. The event was originally scheduled for April but was postponed as a result of the statewide shutdown.
The Safety Festival, now in its 6th year showcases our local First Responders and what they are doing to keep our community safe. COVID-19 has impacted all of us. First Responders and Health Department personnel will be available to answer some of your questions.
“There is so much to do and see…we were thrilled to be there…the turnout was super…a wonderful event for the whole community…we had a fabulous time,” these are just a few of the comments from people who attended last year’s Safety Festival.
The 6th Annual Safety Festival is moving to Tradition Landing for this event. In addition to the demonstrations, touch-a-trucks, vendors, kids zone and other activities this year’s Festival will partner with the Tradition Pumpkin Patch. Up to 2000 pumpkins will be given away. And there will also be a Dance Fit Celebration to benefit the Education Foundation.
The Safety Festival kicks off at 9am and concludes at 2pm. Admission and parking are both free. Attendees will be able to meet our local First Responders including Fire Chief Nate Spera; PSL Police Chief John Bolduc; Ron Parrish, Public Safety Director; Clint Sperber, Health Officer; Wayne Gent, Superintendent of Public Schools and others. And you’ll learn about what they are doing to keep our community safe. News Anchors and reporters from WPBF TV 25 will also be onsite for photos and to answer your questions.
Kids of all ages will be able to climb on and get photos with fire trucks, bulldozers, brush trucks, police cruisers, motorcycles, helicopter and so much more.
