Casper Citizens Turn Out For Second-Annual CityFest [PHOTOS]

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

The city of Casper held its second-annual CityFest at Highland Park on Thursday afternoon.

The event provided an opportunity for Casper residents of all ages to tour critical city equipment, chat with city employees and learn about the significance of several city departments and agencies.

Casper mayor Paul Meyer said just about every city department was in attendance for this year’s event. He also said, for him, the event is one of the most important days of the year.

“This is where electeds belong – out intermingling with the public, showing them what we’re able to accomplish, the means in which we’re able to accomplish it, and just having a good time,” Meyer said.

David Lundahl with Casper Fire-EMS said the event also provided an opportunity for Casper’s emergency agencies to get to know the public better.

“The only time people ever see a fireman or a police officer is in emergency situations,” Lundahl said. “Here at CityFest, it gives them a time to come up and talk to us in a nice, calm, cool and collected manner,” Lundahl said.

Lundahl says somewhere between 300 and 400 people visited the Casper Fire-EMS set-up at the event, which included games, a fire truck tour and a fire hose demonstration for children.

Meyer estimated that at least 500 people attended this year’s event.
