$40 for Two Tickets to Taste of the Little City (Up to $100 Value)
On Thursday, May 10, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Safetyville USA’s miniature city becomes an adults-only entertainment venue with wine, microbrews, and northern California cuisine. Celebrity emcees preside as works of art, sports memorabilia, travel vouchers, award-winning wines, and jewelry go up for bid at a silent auction. Meanwhile, firefighters show off their techniques in a cooking competition. The event supports nonprofit safety and health-education programs for children. Click here for details.
Trained volunteer guides have led more than 500,000 people through Safetyville USA’s model town since it opened in 1984. The one-hour safety and health tours immerse preschool through third-grade students in learning scenarios. For instance, kids learn to cross a street safely by looking left and the other left. They also explore model police, fire, and sheriff stations while learning about fire and traffic safety. Health tours focus on nutrition, exercise, first aid, and hygiene. Picnic tables are available after the tours.
