The Niagara County Department of Health and the Town of Newfane will host KidFest, a family health fair, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday at Krull Park. The event will feature free activities for children and families, including lawn and garden games, Zumba, STEM and reading/literacy.
NCDOH will provide information on various county programs, including chronic disease, lead prevention, healthy homes, and rabies. On site will be the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office, Newfane
Public Library, and Child Advocacy Center of Niagara, plus more than 20 agencies to provide information and resources on community services, health insurance, mental health and family safety.
This event is part of the ice cream – coronavirus vaccine campaign sponsored by NCDOH. First, second and booster vaccines will be available for everyone ages 6 months and older – and everyone who is vaccinated at this event will receive a coupon for a free ice cream.
“We are excited to welcome this event in Newfane-Olcott, where family-friendly attractions, entertainment, shopping and dining offer the perfect summer setting,” said Shawn Foti, 14th
District legislator. “This is a great opportunity for our residents to explore the free resources participating agencies have to offer, and we encourage everyone to attend.”
“The county has teamed up with many local community partners to present this family health fair,” said Daniel Stapleton, Niagara County public health director. “We are really pleased with the number and diversity of organizations in attendance, and we hope this will be a fun event with valuable information and resources that will benefit families in Niagara County.”
