Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center will celebrate the end of summer with free, outdoor health and wellness fairs at two primary care sites this month.

The first, "Grand Wellness," will take place from 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday (Sept. 10) at Grand Island Family Practice, 1801 Grand Island Blvd.

The second will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. the following Monday, Sept. 16, at the River Road Primary Care Center, Wellness Park, 624 River Road, North Tonawanda.

Along with free health screenings, both events will feature music, food vendor Smoke on the Water, interactive health care displays and a jewelry sale sponsored by the Memorial Medical Center Auxiliary. Physicians and pharmacists will be on hand to answer health care questions.

Tops Friendly Markets Pharmacy will have flu shots available at the Grand Island event. The North Tonawanda event will feature child carseat safety checks by the North Tonawanda Police Department and free brown bag pharmaceutical safety reviews by Wellness Pharmacy. To receive a review, bring your prescription and over-the-counter medicines in their original containers.

Children will be entertained by the Fidelis Care "Fidelisaurus" at the North Tonawanda event.
