Safety Fair – Touch-a-Truck
The New York Power Authority (NYPA) will hold a family safety fair on Saturday, June 10th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Niagara Power Vista and its surrounding grounds, 5777 Lewiston Road, Lewiston, N.Y. The event will feature a variety of exhibitors as well as a Touch-a-Truck display to include many NYPA vehicles used to perform daily tasks at the Niagara Power Project. Children up to age 16 are encouraged to enter the “Build Up to Safety” contest by submitted a project – photo collage, poster or sculpture related to the 2017 theme: Weather Safety. The first 300 children will receive a free safety wrist band. In addition to the Safety Fair activities, guests are invited to enjoy the all-new state-of-the-art exhibits at the Niagara Power Vista. Visitors can take a seat in a 4-D theatre virtual roller coaster ride, create a transmission distribution system on a one-of-a-kind transmission grid table, build a dam or simulate the coordination of power across the state during bad weather. Parking and admission are free at the Power Vista. Guests can also board the Discover Niagara Shuttle stopping at attractions located between Niagara Falls and Youngstown. The Niagara Power Vista is featured on the Niagara Falls USA Discovery Pass. Turn in your Discovery Pass coupon for a Power Vista gift.
