The 14th Annual Children’s Health and Safety Fair will be “treating” families to Halloween fun this year.
Set for Oct. 30 from 3-8 p.m. at Warsaw Park on Pulaski Highway in Ansonia, families are encouraged to come in their Halloween costumes to a “Halloween Hoopla,” featuring free healthy treats, games, a show by Freakout Magician Chris Lengyel, along with a variety of health, wellness and safety programs. The event will be held rain or shine.
“The Halloween Hoopla will be a safe, family-friendly environment where children can do their trick-or-treating and the whole family can learn about important information that will keep them safe and healthy on Halloween and year-round,” said Daun Barrett, RN, Director of Griffin Hospital's Community Outreach and Valley Parish Nursing Program.
Interactive health, wellness and safety displays at the event will include poison prevention, good hand washing, how to call 911, and there will be a bike helmet clinic, the Child Identification Program (CHIP), fire engines and rescue vehicles, a safety house to teach about safety features in homes, and much more. Free bike helmets will be available for the first 500 children.
The Halloween Hoopla is sponsored by the Valley Parish Nurses of Griffin Hospital, The Valley Community Foundation, Safe Kids Greater Naugatuck Valley, and Griffin Faculty Physicians.
