Fundraiser for Children's Connection

Norwalk, CT | Added on October 02, 2014 At 12:00 AM

Children’s Connection, a program of the Human Services Council serving New Canaan, Norwalk, Westport, Weston and Wilton, will be hosting the 3rd Annual KIDZFEST Touch-A-Truck fundraiser at Taylor Farm Park in Norwalk on Saturday, October 4, 2014 from 10 – 3.  

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 unique opportunity for families to get in and explore construction, emergency and recreation vehicles of all sizes that are typically off limits to the public. 

Emergency vehicles 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 just to name a few. Eagle One helicopter from Stratford Police Department will also be there!

Attendees can ride the Roaming Railroad, and participate in other activities including face painting, music, games, and much more!  The Meltmobile, as seen on the Food Network, will be serving up gourmet grilled cheeses, Hot Off The Grille will be serving burger and Mister Softee’s Ice Cream will also be there.

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 towards 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 1400 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,” added Pesavento.
