Trista Day 2023

Trista Day started in 2001 as an attempt to get safety information to kids in our community.  We quickly learned that helicopters and hot dogs draw a lot of kids and adults as well.  This proved to be a great opportunity to educate our community on issues like seat
belt use, air bag safety, gun safety, fire prevention, theft prevention, first aid, water safety, park and trail safety, victim services, DWI prevention and many other safety topics.  At its heart Trista Day has always been a safety education event.  An added bonus is that it's been a lot of fun.  Over the years, Trista Day has evolved to include more of the businesses in our area and what they have to offer.  We also provide information on all of our City operations. Trista Day is a great family friendly event that continues to add more and more every year.  If you've never attended Trista Day, please join us this year!  As always, we have free hotdogs, chips, cotton candy, and refreshments.
