Trista Day set for this weekend

Minnetrista’s annual public safety celebration is in it’s 17th year this weekend as Trista Day heads opens at 11 a.m. on May 20.

The event focuses on connecting community members with first responders, teaching safety tools and tips. Surrounding public safety agencies that will be present include: Mound Fire, St. Boni Fire, Ridgeview Ambulance, Lifeline Helicopter, Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

“You don’t have to be a Minnetrista resident to attend,” Minnestrista Police Chief Paul Falls said. “All of the first responders there serve multiple communities, so we encourage everyone to come out and see us.”

There will be chances for kids to check out fire trucks, police cars and ambulances, as well as a K-9 demonstration and the return of the pig races.
