St. Catharines Fire Services, Thorold Fire and Emergency Services and the Real Canadian Superstore invite the community to spring into fire safety at the Community Safety Fun Fest. The free event offers a chance for families to meet firefighters for a day of fun and learn about the important roles of other community organizations, including:
Visitors can have their passports stamped at each booth and activity. Completed passports can be entered into a draw for a variety of prizes donated by the participating agencies and community businesses.
Don’t miss is the Fire Safety Trailer where families can learn about the different types of hazards in the home, how to develop a home escape plan, and even practice escaping from a simulated fire.
Join us for an incredible evening of ELECTRIFYING TUNES, featuring two of Ontario’s greatest rock trios, and support an integral local organization committed to social change!

Communism is a shockingly energetic rock trio with songs that have as much meaning as they have rock, rhythm, and melody. The music makes you dance, and the words awaken your inner activist. Take Care of Each Other, Forgiveness, One of Everyone, Heart Farmer… the songs fill you with hope, connection, and harmony – all while rocking your world like a mash-up of Van Halen, The Clash, Queen, Michael Jackson, and Talking Heads.

No Fixed Address is an event experience to raise awareness and funds to help solve the rising problem of hidden homelessness, to educate about the reasons behind those who are calling their car “home”, and to impact individuals through an experience that will inspire them to be the voice of change for the “hidden homeless.”
No Fixed Address –is a 24 hour Live-In-Your-Car-A-Thon. Like a marathon or a walk-a-thon, participants will gather sponsorships from friends and family and take part in an event that gives them a taste of what it is like to have to live in their car.
Over the course of 24 hours participants will experience just how little room a car has when you sleep in it, what a soup kitchen diet looks like and how difficult it is to find a private rest room when you most need it. They will be stretched and challenged. They will want to laugh, cry and reflect. They will leave forever changed.
