A live petting zoo, bouncy castle, race track and even dinky car racing were just a few of the activities lined up for Formula First Collision’s third annual Sunday Funday event.

Working alongside the Safety Village, Formula First vice president Franco Gobbato said the shop looks for fun ways to get involved and give back to the community they’ve been a part of for so long.

“It’s a family run collision shop this family started back in ’64,” said Gobbato. “We’ve been in this community for so many years and just want to be able to do a car themed event that we can invite kids and families out to and show our facility and what we’re about.”

By giving just a $5 donation to the Safety Village at the gate, families were able to enjoy a large array of activities as well as learn about the safety village and the collision shop.

“The Safety Village is awesome, they help us with organizing the event, they provide a lot of volunteers as well so they’re really great to work with,” said Christina Melnik, marketing manager of Formula First Collision. “It’s been great, every year it progressively gets better and better. We get a little bit bigger each year, we get more people coming each year, we’re really happy.”
