Alive @ Five Kicks Off with Three Tobacco Free Events

The Cascade City-County Health Department (CCHD) is excited to announce that it is collaborating with the Downtown Great Falls Association to make the first three Alive @ Five events of 2013 tobacco free.

Alive @ Five is held in downtown Great Falls every Thursday from June through August and kicks off this year on June 6th. This fun event invites the public to enjoy live music, food, vendors, and games. It is free to attend and usually goes from 5pm to 9pm. Tobacco free events of this type were inspired by other Montana communities eliminating tobacco use in order to create healthy environments for public summer activities.

Alive @ Five is a family friendly, and it’s important to provide families with an enjoyable and healthy atmosphere. CCHD Tobacco Prevention Specialist Teddy Nault shares his excitement when he states, “Health begins where we eat, work, and play. By making the first three Alive @ Five events tobacco free we are taking a step forward in making this summer event not only fun, but healthy too!”

CCHD is excited to be a part of Alive @ Five and encourages the public to attend this event. The CCHD Tobacco Use Prevention Program will be present at the event on June 6th to answer questions by event goers.
