NORWALK, Conn. -- Human Services Council’s third annual KIDZFEST Touch-A-Truck Fundraiser to benefit Children’s Connection will be held Saturday, Oct. 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Taylor Farm Park, located on Calf Pasture Beach Road in Norwalk.
The event includes a hands-on interactive family event with real vehicles that dig, climb, rescue, crunch, honk and fly. Cost is $5 per person.
KIDZFEST offers the opportunity for families to get in and explore construction, emergency and recreation vehicles of all sizes that are typically off limits to the public.
The emergency vehicles will include police vehicles, crime scene investigation trucks and ATVs (from local police departments), ambulance, scuba boat, Norwalk fire trucks; and construction vehicles: excavator, wheel loader, skid steer, dump truck, flat bed with fork lift, and race car.
Attendees can ride the Roaming Railroad, and participate in other activities including face painting, music, games, and more.
The Meltmobile, as seen on the Food Network, will be serving fabulous gourmet grilled cheeses, Hot Off The Grille and Mister Softee’s Ice Cream will also beat the event.
KIDZFEST raises funds to support Children’s Connection, a nationally accredited Children’s Advocacy Center that works to identify, substantiate, and treat cases of sexual and severe physical abuse while working toward its mission of creating a world where no child is harmed and no family is left without guidance.
“We are really excited to be holding this event again,” said Kari Pesavento, Director of Children’s Connection. “Last year over 1,400 people attended KIDZFEST and we hope to surpass that number this year. With more than 40 trucks scheduled to attend as well as other activities, KIDZFEST is gearing up to be the perfect day for a family outing."
