As proud supporters of Boys Town Pediatrics, Performance Automotive Group sponsored the fourth annual Healthy Kids Carnival event that took place Saturday, August 3rd 2013 at the Boys Town Medical Campus near 139th and Pacific streets in Omaha, Nebraska.
The Healthy Kids Carnival provided children and their families' information on proper nutrition, the importance of exercise and how healthy living and choices can be fun. Children enjoyed participating in a number of activities including face painting stations, karate displays, bounce houses, healthy snacks and fitness demonstrations while parents met with Boys Town Pediatric physicians and learned about the services of Boys Town Hospital.
Performance Auto Group teamed up with the National Safety Council to promote car seat safety and installation, as well as, allow visitors to participate in their distracted driving simulator in a new 2013 Ford Escape. There was also a 2013 Toyota Sienna on display showing parents how to properly install their children's car seats.
