    • CityFest has activities for the whole family, including seeing the big rigs up close used to keep the city safe and healthy every day.

    • The family-friendly event includes demonstrations and displays representing the work of a variety of City departments.

    • We love our special four-legged Police employees, who enjoy the event as much as the humans.

    • Kids squeal with excitement as a Life Flight helicopter lands at CityFest and opens its doors for tours of the inside.
